Under the coach storage would probably add so much time to the loading and unloading process that it would never be feasible though...
It wasn't bad in the day... of course my parents had the one little collapsible umbrella stroller. The monsters these parents drag in today... yeah. :roll:

And thanks a lot, Len, I found myself looking at bus numbers the whole ride home after reading your roster! :lol:

Maybe on the rear of the bus. I'm surprised there isn't one on the front as well. These look nice for wheelchair/ECV entrance!

They didn't. At least not yet for most of the buses.
We are all a little weird
And life's a little weird,
And when we find someone whose
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love.”

So the new scheme is just for new buses added to the fleet?

Are they longer than the current buses, or does it just look that way?

I don't know because I haven't seen the "new" buses.

Just found one of my transportation collector cards and I can confirm that is indeed a Nova.
