Operating Equipment of the Air Base Bus Lines Last week's article was concerned with the ownership of the Air Base Bus Lines and helped dissipate spurious rumors to the' effect that some officers or enlisted men, or both, were profiting per scnally from the operation of this transportation system. This, of course. is entirely false. In an. exclusive interview with Mr. A. Pickens Coles, president of the company, a good picture of the equipment situation was se cured. According to Mr. Coles, the bus company is doing everything possible to give good service, and will continue k do this. There are grave difficulties, however, as Mr. Coles pointed out-difficulties concerned with a rapidly expanding military personnel, and with a practical impossibility of getting more equipment. However, he as sured the Echoes representativethai" everything possible would be dcne-that as fast as more equipment could be obtained, it would be put into service. At the present time, serving both Drew and MacDill Fields, there are 29 buses in operation, divided according to type, as follows: Twelve "Cattle Cars," which are tractor-trailers (converted new trailers), seating SO men. Eight "Dive Bombers," which are 33-passenger buses, which will uli'imately be equipped with air-doors. Seven "Butt-Heads," which are regular city-type buses, seating from 29 to 44 men. Two "Pride of the Fleet" buses, which are rebuilt inter-city buses, seating 44 men. Of course, it is a military secret about how many men are a I Drew and MacDill Fields, but it is no secret thai there are plenty of men. It is obvious that ,transporting thousands of men into town every 'nighf is a very definite problem. For example, in February of this year, the company had 145,000 passengers, including civilian riders to both fields. In February of 1942, the figure was only cne
