• Short bus? All the buses look the same size in my city.

      Here 'the short bus' is used for children with special needs.

      Never heard the expression either. In Africa there is virtually no welfare, it's survival of the fittest. Luckily, I've always been fit and healthy.

      Its not welfare, exactly. But you did widen my perspective! Thank you.
  • Nope. Too tall.
  • I never rode it but our school district has them
  • Short busses became a thing of the past after the "No Child Left Behind" law went into effect. Most of these people have probably never heard of the short bus, although I can surmise a few should have ridden one back in the day.

      I assume that's your way of saying they are mentally limited? When in reality they are socially limited? Or maybe disagree with you? My son rode the short bus for a time. He is a genius who had behavior issues for a time. They are also for those who are limited in what they can do physically. And thanks for snapping me into the present. I guess it HAS been a while since I worked with the special needs children.
