Hope bus manufactures place emphasis on ride comfort and than 'feel good' features like lighting and charging points. With our undulating surfaces and badly designed expansion joints on bridges, the hard suspension thuds right through the passengers' spine or keeps bouncing along faster stretches.
Why not boast about advanced air suspension technology when buses (I assume) are not designed for high payloads

Absolutely correct. What the general traveller needs today is ride comfort, more leg room and a charging point.
