School buses...

I don't get it...

I drove home from work yesterday and like everyday I get home at 3pm and there's school buses everywhere on the road which is understandable due to school ending for the day...
Yesterday tops the list, 9 on the parkway for 5 miles WTH!

but why the big ass yellow POS buses? I mean they're half size of a long one, looks like an half assed school bus. 95% of the time I see them driving empty or with just 2-3 kids.

Those long yellow buses, those do get filled with kids but the shorter ones...WTF!

I don't see why can't a van be painted in yellow and used?
Different van sizes have rows of seats that can be added...
...it's cheaper and does the same purpose with less weight and could be diesel too.

BTW stay out of the damn left lane school buses!:mad:

This doesn't really have anything to do with what you're talking about but in high school some kid passed like 8 school buses as they were letting kids out in front of the school (with their red stop signs out and blinking red lights) and got a seperate ticket for EACH ONE that he passed. He wasn't too bright.

oh and school bus stories.....

once i was behind a bus and i guess the radiator broke or something and coolant started spilling alllll over the road so i flashed my hazards at the bus and was trying to get his attention and he finally pulled over. so i pull over and run over to the bus driver and i told him coolant was leaking and he was like "it is???....wait how do you even know what coolant is?" hahaha so yeah they had to clean it all up, i twas a huge mess.

i just remember highschool and having that SHITTY ass old bus with the ripped up seats untinted windows, only 1/4 of which you could get to go down and another 1/4 you couldnt get to go up

and then occasionally getting one of the short retard busses that are brand new in perfect condition practically leather seating and a freaking AC


anyway yea most cities bus system is messed up and wastefull, wasted taxpayer money
