'An old Sydney bus fully restored -- bussing like it used to be in Sydney' posted by Fran


Old Sydney buses had character

an experience of city and town

The new buses I ride on today are comfortable and fairly quiet but I miss the character of the buses I rode as a little girl growing up. They used to rattle and shake and jump around and the idea of talking to the driver was unthinkable 'cos he had his own little booth with a separate door. And then there was the conductor with his leather bag stuffed with ticket stubbs and money. Those were the days.
