Have a tour bus or commercial bus you want to make more enjoyable to ride on? Curtains installed on the windows can be a big help.

Bus tracks do not refer to the marks left by the tires but to the tracks used to hold up the curtains on the bus. The types of track you need will depend on the carriers you pick. When you order the rollers or gliders with your curtains, look on the product page for the carriers you want. The tracks listed on that page will all be compatible with the carrier you selected for your curtains.
When you are ready to order your curtains, besides the type of slides you want, you also need to measure the curtains. Each window should be measured individually to ensure that you get the correct size. If your bus has existing curtains, measure those. Measure the length and width of the window you want to cover. It should be from where the track will be installed to the point where you want the curtains to drop to. Add some inches to the width of the curtains if you want them to completely cover the sides of the window or if you want pleats.
