A running board is a narrow step fitted under the side doors of a car or truck. It aids entry, especially into high vehicles, and is typical of vintage cars, which had much higher ground clearances than today's vehicles. It is also used as a fashion statement on vehicles that would not otherwise require it. The origin of the name running board is obscure; the first running boards predate automobiles and were installed on carriages as early as the 17th century. Whether the running board was named after the inventor or in reference to function is open to debate.

  • Ein Trittbrett ist ein Automobilanbauteil, das als schmale – nicht ausklappbare – Stufe unter den Seitentüren eines Fahrzeugs angebracht ist. Es erleichtert den Einstieg, insbesondere bei hohen Fahrzeugen wie Geländefahrzeugen und Pickup-Trucks. Es ist typisch für Oldtimer, die sehr viel mehr Bodenfreiheit hatten als heutige Fahrzeuge, und wird heute auch als modisches Zierteil an Fahrzeugen eingesetzt, die es eigentlich gar nicht benötigen. Trittbretter werden gelegentlich auch dazu benutzt, um darauf zu stehen, während ein Fahrzeug in Bewegung ist. (de)
  • ランボードとは、ランニングボード(Running board)の略で、 1. * 鉄道車両において点検作業者が蒸気機関車のボイラー脇や電車などの屋根上を歩くために設けられた「歩み板」である。 2. * 自動車では、主に車体側面のすそに設けられた、乗降を助ける「踏み板」の一種。 (ja)
  • Een treeplank is een smalle, niet uitklapbare trap gemonteerd aan de zijkanten van een voertuig. Deze helpt bij het instappen van grotere voertuigen, zoals bij onder meer SUV's, pick-ups en spoorwegrijtuigen. (nl)
  • A running board is a narrow step fitted under the side doors of a car or truck. It aids entry, especially into high vehicles, and is typical of vintage cars, which had much higher ground clearances than today's vehicles.

The origin of the name running board is obscure; the first running boards predate automobiles and were installed on carriages as early as the 17th century. Whether the running board was named after the inventor or in reference to function is open to debate. Back in the early 20th century, all automobiles were equipped with running boards. The necessity of using them was caused by the fact that first cars were designed with a narrow, high body bolted to the chassis. A running board served as a step to a vehicle's cabin and was wide enough to serve as a place to sit or even lie down for an adult. During the 1920s and 1930s, car design was evolving rapidly to become more sleek and aerodynamic. It eliminated the need for running boards. The first automobile designed without running boards was the 1936 Cord. It changed the attitude towards running boards for many years ahead. Running boards may also be used to stand on while the vehicle is moving. The name running board is also given to safety appliances for walking on top of rail cars. (en)
