Video: A Brief History of the School Bus

Why are school buses yellow? How many miles to the gallon does the average school bus get? And how many miles does the average school bus travel?
 
In 1992, John Merrow, education correspondent for PBS' NewsHour, immersed himself with school bus riders and drivers. Around that time, Houston's school buses got a whopping seven miles to the gallon and traveled over 15 million miles each year and today, it's not much better.
 

Are you familiar with other cities doing similarly innovative things involving student transport?
