That's not the point. Every time I'm following a school bus I have to put my ventilation on recirculate because the fumes are so bad.

The same people who claim to want a cleaner environment and supposedly care so much about their children put them on buses that pollute and literally stink. If adults (except the driver, who is undoubtedly also unionized and highly paid, and therefore not about to complain) were subjected to riding on the same buses, they might not tolerate it.
