High milage/ high hours busses. How many does your bus have?

A long lasting bus is something to be proud of. How many miles or hours does your bus have?

240k miles. No hour meter but I'd imagine 10k hours AT LEAST.

Mine shows 7,269... I have no idea how many times its rolled over, if it has.
No hour meter on the bus, but the 3 cylinder Mitsubishi motor on the back shows 368 hours, which seems low for 1989.

My bus has 165k miles with no hour meter.

However, another very similar bus from the same district with only a few thousand more miles showed 14k hours when we looked at the lot at auction... That's a LOT of idling. I imagine ours is in the same boat

My bus shows 7800 hours. It was a school bus in BC and then worked as oilfield company bus in Northern Alberta so it had a ton of idleing in cold weather. Not sure if the odometer is correct though.

the carpenter has no hour gauge.. it is a 1991, had a new engine installed in 2004 and has 95k on that.. I have no idea how many total on the bus since the gauges were replaced same time engine was..

RedByrd. has 8400 hours and 146k miles , its tranny was replaced at some point as there's a rebuild tag on it.. the engine and ECM match OEM serial number .. seems to run good and the A/C is cold which is all I care about . if I blow it up, 444E's are plentiful i'll just put another one in..
