Description

The History of the School Bus

In 1886 the Wayne Works company made horse-drawn carriages known as “school hacks” or “kid hacks” in Indiana. Before then, children simply walked or rode farm wagons to school.

By 1914, the automotive industry was beginning to boom. Bus design remained mostly the same as the previous versions, with students sitting along the walls facing inward.

In 1927, the first bus that primarily used steel panels was built. In 1930, Wayne Works introduced the first all-steel school bus body with safety glass windows. In 1939, Dr. Frank Cyr organized a conference at the University of Manhattan to develop school bus standards.

A total of 44 new national standards were created for interior dimensions and seating configurations, as well as the famous yellow color. The color was chosen because yellow is particularly eye-catching to humans and is especially visible in the early morning and evening.
