* The buses will all have a British vehicle safety certificate. Although this certificate is NOT valid in the US, it will guarantee, that the bus is in good condition, meaning brakes, lights, tires, steering, etc. British safety standards for public vehicles are very strict and, in my experience, a bus that passed there will definitely pass here in the US.
