Old buses turned into activity rooms at Indian primary school

AFP, 24 Jun 2022
Old public transport buses are given a new life at a primary school in India's Kerala state. Once destined for the junkyard, they are now turned into activity rooms for children between the ages of three and five through the "Education on Wheels" initiative by the Thiruvananthapuram local government. The initiative seeks to assist schools with shortage of learning space for students. The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) donated the two scrapped buses which will be converted into air-conditioned rooms fitted with televisions, speakers, and perhaps even Wi-Fi if needed. To renovate one bus takes four days and costs under $4,000.
