Wunderbus.

My friend Ehren recently bought a school bus and is in the process of turning it into a mobile home. Pretty soon, he’ll be on a nationwide tour, which he will chronicle here. The first leg of the journey is already up. I’m just waiting for some really fabulous photos of the converted bus, which he’s working on right now in some Shaughnessy parking lot in Southie, which he gained access to by going straight to the top.
So stay tuned for what is sure to be a thrilling ride.

  1. I get the impression this kid doesn’t have a license authorizing him to drive a bus.
    “They didn’t have a parking lot for me to practice in…”
    Deep doo-doo.

  2. In Massachusetts, you can drive a bus with a plain
    old Class D (passenger) license. However, I believe
    under that condition you are limited to 15 passengers.
    Although his vehicle clearly exceeds the 13-ton Class D
    weight limit, it doesn’t apply to buses, school or
    otherwise.

  3. When I picked it up, the bus weighed about 10 tons. I came to that figure by multiplying the area of the tires touching the ground by their pressure, which is good for a ballpark but not much else. The 13 ton limit matters for everything except motor homes, which are exempt despite being just as dangerous to drive.
    To register it as a truck (no special license required) all you need to do is make it “not yellow,” take off the flashenlights, the stop sign, and remove all but seating for When I picked it up, the bus weighed about 10 tons.
