Surprised on the low amount of change found.
Not surprised on the amount of candy wrappers.
Your bus isn't old enough yet to be having interior rust issues.
It wasn't so very long ago that school districts, particularly the smaller districts with low assessed values and no industry, had to hang onto their buses long past their 20-year life cycle. Even Crowns and Gilligs got to looking pretty scruffy when they were entering into the third and fourth decade of service.
The last time I was by the Willapa Valley bus garage I saw they had a nifty new pole barn under which the whole fleet was able to live. That is bound to keep their buses looking better longer and it will really help with the interior damp issues. It isn't a heated garage but out of the weather can really help.
