I was recently told of an upcoming art trip and I would be able to go If there were enough seats. I was excited and could hardly wait, only to find out there was not enough room for me to go.

The only thing worse than finding this out was seeing my friends’ posts on “Snapchat” and “Instagram.”  This problem, like many others, could have easily been solved if the school had a minibus.

Though many teachers would love to take a bus for their school trips, a lack of bus drivers makes this impossible. Most teachers can only take one suburban, which only holds seven or eight students. A minibus holds up sixteen. Having a minibus would also eliminate the problem of finding a bus driver. Anyone with a license issued before January 1, 1997, can drive one.

“I would totally drive a minibus. I end up having to leave students behind when we go to journalism workshops because I don’t have enough room in the Suburban,” Meridith Barney, Canton media advisor, said.

Mini-buses also offer safer rides due to dual rear wheels and steel cage construction. Dual rear wheels are important because it decreases rollover risk. The steel cage construction on a bus’s sidewalls helps protect passengers from injury in the event of an accident.

A Suburban costs around $50,800, while a minibus cost $59,950. That being said, a minibus can hold twice as many people.
