Everybody On The Bus In Kolkata

The buses (and trucks, really anything large and on the road) of India are outrageously colorful and add a wonderful variety to the endless streams of traffic. In Kolkata, the busy commercial district presented a nice parade of these moving pieces of art.

Here come the buses, all aboard!

Some riders. A detail of the fare taker, ticket giver. The rolled up display of money fanned out is sublime.

A wider look at the fare taker. Colorful enough for you? You are Wel Come!

The details that make a difference, all hand-painted and proud.

Some of the buses on the road are quite old. Notice the wood window trim and the wood ceiling slats. But the colors are as fresh and bright as ever.
