There are certainly more buses running today than there used to be when I was younger. The first bus I ever rode on was the big yellow one that took all of us kids to school. I remember thinking how important I felt to be going on this bus with all the bigger kids. Back then all ages and grades rode the same bus. It's not like it is today with each school having it's own set of buses. Anyway, once I got to ride on one I felt so tiny. Some of the kids on that bus were like giants to me, we were packed in there like sardines. I remember being in a seat almost to the back of the bus. By the time I reached the sixth grade there was a bus for just that grade. They were bussing all sixth graders to one particular school. That was the only time I had ever traveled so far to school each day.
