This is an article that includes a story about a Detroit start up company that is using a Blue Bird bus to supplement the city bus service.

I drive for him once a month or so if they are short handed. That Blue Bird is in great shape. 1996 Ford from the metro Detroit area. They also have a 1995 Thomas International, a 1988 MCI, and a 1990s Eldorado Transmark RE.

That's cool! I sure hope they get your town turned around. I just watched a news story about the bankruptcy. Pretty interesting stuff. Maybe a better thought would be, I hope your voters put folks in that have a backbone and are honest!

Very cool! I heard about this story a while back. Good to see that some retired school buses are being put back into good use.
