Buses are one of the main ways kids get home after school. Although some buses are fine, some could be better and could be more organized for you to sit by your friends and have an easy and safe ride home.
There are several things that could be improved when it comes to space on the buses such as more space on seats, having more seats, and being able to save seats.
“My bus doesn’t allow us to save seats and there are usually 3 people in a seat so I am often not able to sit with my friends.”
There are also many reasons that make the bus so hot, but one of the main reasons is the air conditioning if there is even one on your bus. They are generally not very good and only cover the very front portion of the bus.
“The air conditioning on our bus is lacking in terms of coverage and actually keeping the air cool especially if you’re sitting in the back half of the bus.”
My interviewee often cannot sit with his friends on the bus in the afternoon because of the number of people on the bus. My interviewee thinks that there should either be more space on the bus or more buses in total.
Many bus air conditioning is turned off by the bus operators to save money. This is reasonable if it’s a nice day but if it is even moderately cold or warm. A Lot of buses also come really late. This can be really annoying for some especially if they are going to be busy after school.
