Ever wonder what happened to all those "Bluebell" snub-nose busses that took you to school every day?
Well, they were shipped to Latin America (or at least, to Guatemala), repainted (usually) and pressed into service as intracity busses. Called "chicken busses" as a nod to the diversity of cargo, the fare is usually less than a buck, and it is not uncommon to see eight passengers in a row.
My commute depends on the bike racks that all of our busses have, but these front-loading racks are limited to two or three bikes. Chicken busses would not appear to be so restricted.
[note the service quality: that's the fare collector on the right, not the passenger, hoisting the bike to its resting place]
