Chicken Buses Of Guatemala

What happens to yellow school buses retired from commission in the United States? They start a new colorful life as Chicken Buses in Guatemala. A chicken bus (Spanish: camioneta or trambilla) is a colloquial English name for a colorful, modified and decorated bus that transports goods and people between communities in Honduras and foremost in Guatemala.

The word 'chicken' refers to the fact that rural Guatemalans occasionally transport live animals on such buses.
