Buses of Guatemala

While the buses within Guatemala City are mostly older transit style former school buses, the interurban buses tend to be newer conventional models. These newer buses, serving places like Antigua, are the most highly decorated ones I’ve seen in Central America. The paint jobs tend to be bright and polished, and I even saw a couple of buses with scrolling LED headsigns where they used to say School Bus. One reason for their relatively good condition may be the national government’s law prohibiting the importation of buses more than a certain number of years old (the bus owner I interviewed wasn’t sure of the exact age).
