Buses may be a popular and extremely valuable mode of public transportation but they are also very versatile vehicles that have been used for a number of other purposes. There are some people that have managed to convert the humble bus into something really special, creating something unique and imaginative – converted buses can be whatever you wish! Some of the converted buses that have been transformed into awesome creations by people with flair and imagination include: The rustic apartment: A 1978 school bus was transformed into something of a rustic apartment, with wooden floors and beams inside, cozy furniture, and even a wood stove for heating. Sandwich bar: With seating for diners, a long bar with stools, and a colorfully decorated interior, an Oregon bus has been transformed into a unique diner serving up grilled cheese sandwiches. The art studio: One ambitious artist decided to be practical and innovative by using an old school bus and converting it into a temporary studio to create his masterpieces. A learning facility: To create valuable space for adult students, one bus was converted into a learning facility with seating, desks, and shelving for books and belongings. Party bus: Having fun with friends in the house isn’t always easy, particularly if you have parents moaning about the noise.

The World's Craziest Buses

Buses are vehicles that many of us tend to take for granted. We hop on and hop off as necessary without giving them a second glance other than to check we are on the right one. However, not all buses are the same…in fact, the world is full of strange and pretty crazy buses that would definitely have you looking twice. These are just the craziest buses! If you think that buses are nothing to write home about, think again. While this might be true of the average bus, the buses below are anything but average. Some of the craziest buses in the world include: The Phantom Fighter Engine Bus: Located in the USA, you will find the perfect bus for speed freaks. This is a bus that combines a standard yellow school bus with a Phantom fighter engine to create a vehicle that can reach speeds of over 360 MPH. Auto Tram Extra Grand: Based in Germany, this is the centipede of buses. This gigantic bus comes in three segments and is more than 100 feet long – so it could take you a while if you like to sit at the back of the bus.   The Topsy Turvey Bus: This bus is not just a bus – it’s art on wheels. Looking from the ground up it looks like a standard yellow school bus. However, on top of the bus is another bus, which is upside down like a mirror image, complete with wheels in the air.   The Platinum Plus: If you thought there was no such thing as luxury bus travel, think again.
