The pride of the BlueJay bus lines during the seventies, Bus 471 successfully did numerous trips between Boston and New York for a decade. On April 3rd 1974, driver Gus Kramer started such a commute with a load of thirty passengers.
It was raining hard but, Gus wasn’t intimidated. However, Bus 471 never arrived that day at its destination. Police located it parked in the grass, completely empty of people. Luggage and personal belongings were onboard, but nothing else. Forty years later, it sits there as a shrine to Gus and all his passengers who still have not been found.
