I Want This Bus!



Or at least a bus a lot like it.

Some of you've probably seen this bus before.. Looks to me like it could be a late 90s or early 2000s model.

I have been thinking about paint jobs because my home state, Wisconsin, requires a bus to be any other color than national school bus yellow. Not looking for the rainbow affect either. Something low key would be nice. Always trying not to attract too much attention. This paint job really seems to fit the bill, while the black accents give it a little bit of style.

Go for a high headroom bus. Even if you're short.

Yes I absolutely think so too. I am new to the world of school buses, but I am finding that there is a lot about them to like.
