CC Cinema/Bus Stop Classics: GM New Look – A Day in the Life of a Bus Driver Circa 1965

I came across this quaint documentary video made by the Santa Monica Bus Lines – and it sure brought back a flood of memories of my bus riding days in the ‘60s. 

Coin changer, transfers, small talk with the driver…things have changed quite a bit over the past fifty years. LA residents will likely recognize many of the streets and locations.

Santa Monica‘s “Big Blue Bus” held on to their New Looks much longer than other locales – the last one was finally retired in 2005.
