When was the School Bus Invented?

In 1827, George Shillibeer introduced the first school bus for Quaker School at

Abney Park in Stoke Newington in the Northeast of the United Kingdom. It was

a horse-drawn and designed to carry 25 children. The rear-engine diesel-powered

school bus was introduced in 1959 by Gillig Brothers. Collin Bus introduced the

first small school bus in 1967 and later in 1973 by Wayne Busette.

The Purpose of Field Trips

The purpose of a field trip is usually observation for education, non-experimental research
or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, such as
the zoo, museum, nature trails, theaters, camping, historical sites, etc.. with
teachers and their classmates. Field Trips provide hands on experience for the students..
