That explanation down the bottom seems a bit stupid - its not doing the *same* thing its a similar thing. Not sure how to word it (eg they ride the bus versus drive the bus). —This unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) at 01:40, 9 October 2008.
Originally buses were horse drawn. So the bus driver would take the holiday on the bus so as to be close to their horses. Don't have a source though. :/ --Sodoherty (talk) 09:14, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
