Evolution of the School Bus


Pupil transportation vehicles have come a long way from the early days of horse-drawn "kid hacks," as they were called. Here's a look back through the many manifestations of the school bus during the past century. This photo gallery originally appeared in our 50th anniversary issue.

I am a school bus enthusiast ever since I was a little girl and I also used to ride school buses when I was in school

We are 4 friends discussing years gone by school buses. We want to know about the seating arrangement of previous school buses. Where they all formed with seating on each side facing forward or was there ever a time when there was a different seating style, i.e. with a long seat in the middle and window seats with your back to the window. I thought this was sort of true.
