Ambient recording of a ride on an old bus (1997 New Flyer D40LF).

For the first minute or so the bus is just idling, waiting at the stop. Bus' windows rattle a little with the vibration of the engine. Then, the doors close and the bus gets underway. Engine makes a distinctive groaning sound, and the kick of the transmission shifting is clearly audible; this bus' transmission has seen better days. :)

Passengers board at 1:45; bus gets underway again.

Bus hits a couple potholes starting at 2:40; whole bus structure rattles loudly.

At 4:00, bus stops. Doors open; passengers board. Doors close; bus gets underway again.

Bus hits a BIG pothole at 4:55. :)
