It may be that this particular bus had vinyl/canvas "recruiting" or "hiring" signs ... it might have been used basically as a billboard to hire drivers for the school district. The loops used to secure the banner/sign. That's my guess.


My bus has *One*, which is intended to secure the wheelchair door open.

Rare indeed, the times I've had more than a single dawg, so never pondered on how to provide potty time for a pack!

This. Maybe not all schools do this but some schools do when they take the team for away games they have banners on the side of the bus assuming the school district wasn't wealthy enough for a dedicated team bus in school color livery. Also seen many districts park a bus with a Hiring banner affixed to the side.

For a sled dog team, bare minimum, I'd say!

They look like factory Blue Bird luggage door holders, as was suggested earlier. I have them on my 1994.

The spacing seems odd, though, so they may have been repurposed.
Looking at the panels below, there may have been compartments there originally. Look for traces of compartments underneath. There might be "tracks" where the big J-hooks went over the frame.

I'm thinking that someone put anchors in to tie stuff on the roof and placed them low enough for easy access? Just a thought.

I like the school/team banner idea.

If you actually painted the bus, then it wouldn't be yellow anymore - which could disqualify it from running a regular school route during the day. (Not to mention that I think people would flip if the school spend $5000 on custom paint. A $500 banner, no problem.)

EDIT - But there's only one row, and that's an odd height for a banner. . .

I have one for the wheelchair door. Looks just like that.
