Midget Bus Travels 15 m.p.h.
PATTERNED after its big brothers of the highways, a midget passenger bus has been constructed by L. P. Wright, a garage-man in St. Paul, Minnesota. The tiny bus cost about $350 to build.
The miniature vehicle has a seating capacity of nine small children. Dual electric motors, operating off four storage batteries, are located beneath the hood and enable the bus to attain a speed of 15 m.p.h.
The 11-foot bus is complete in many respects and features a horn, headlights, and steering mechanism. Small balloon tires give the vehicle excellent riding qualities. Needless to state, the bus is extremely popular with local tots, many of whom do not even have to stoop to enter the door.
