This article is a study of the air quality at a bus terminal. Presence and concentration of indoor air quality indices were determined by field surveys and sampling. Bus emission rates, occupational exposure and ventilation requirements to have a correct indoor air quality were simulated by mathematical model.

The results show that the natural ventilation rates are too low for having a good indoor air quality, and that pollutants emission varies with the temperature.
