      no guest. i hit a bus once with an s 10 and i crumpled while the bus was left with a tiny scuff. they have to be built with serious reinforcement because bus drivers are known for not only stopping often but stop HARD! and within a short distance. they dont realize it cause most driver are female. who wouldve thought a female driver that slams on the breaks like a drag racer with no chute.

    The damage to the bus is on the driver side and the SUV is covering most of it up in this picture. I hope the lady driving the SUV was ok.

    The National Association of Pupil Transportation (NAPT) is having their annual conference in Grand Rapids this week. This bus was one that was driven to the conference by a bus vendor for use in one of the conventions, hence why it wasn't marked and had been parked a few days.
