The Bus That Travels without Moving

​This 1952 Flxible Visicoach transports its passengers back to an era when integrated schools such as Boys Town experienced many difficulties when taking their athletic teams on the road to compete. Now housed permanently in the Boys Town Hall of History, this old bus serves as an important reminder of Father Flanagan’s progressive views on equality and fairness. Watch the video below to take a trip back in time.
