I’ve compiled a few statistics on the vehicles in which I traveled from Los Angeles International Airport to the Benque/Melchor border between Belize and Guatemala.
In Belize, I rode 23 vehicles that were formerly school buses, the majority of which (16) were Blue Bird All Americans. Blue Bird was the predominant body manufacturer; I also rode two Thomas Conventionals, one Corbeil Type A, and one Crown Supercoach. In buses, I traveled 753 miles over the course of 35 hours – on average, more than an hour on a bus per day during my stay in Belize. Twenty years was the average age of the buses for which I could determine a model year.
