Public bus showing a destination of San Francisco

A multi-colored public bus waits in a depot displaying a destination of San Francisco.

This 1960s era bus was probably bought used from the city of San Francisco in the United States. Many South American nations rely on used vehicles cast off from their richer neighbor to the north. Throughout Latin America, visitors can see classic US vehicles crowding the streets.
