EXPERIENCED DRIVERS CHECK BUS: These three Lincoln School District bus drivers have a combined total of 79 years of experience operating Lincoln buses. They are checking the wide windshield of the newest bus with Lee Jones (right), mechanic and bus supervisor for the district. The drivers are (left to right) Woodrow Jones, Lee's brother, with 22 years; Mrs. Flora Bunton, the "dean" of the corps with 33 years; and Mrs. Lottie Towler with 24 years. Women outnumber men drivers by a 4 to 1 margin. Lincoln has a fleet of 21 buses. Below, Mrs. Bunton is pictured beside her bus in 1925. She first began driving buses a year earlier.

U-M's Distaff Driver: Mrs. Craig Rosey, the University's first woman bus driver, notes that because of the job she has "built up some very strong arm muscles." She took the part-time bus-driving work because of the low wages paid women in other fields. When Mrs. Rosey isn't piloting the 35-foot, five-geared monster around campus, she is taking classes at the U-M's nursing school.
