Background. It is well known that one of the most dangerous types of road accidents with buses is a rollover. UNECE Regulation № 66 stipulates the requirements that must be satisfied by the structure of a multipassenger vehicle’s body. The specific shift-buses on truck chassis present a separate group of buses and are designed to be used in harsh climatic conditions. Therefore there is an urgent task consisting in assessment of buses’ passive safety in the entire temperature range at operating conditions. The paper justifies the choice of a range of temperature conditions for this type of buses that must be taken into account during structure design thereof.
