Grandfather buys bus to take his 10 grandchildren to school

Grandpa buys bus

An Oregon grandfather wanted to go above and beyond for his grandchildren this Christmas.

The gift this year certainly will not fit under a tree. Doug Hayes, who is a grandfather of 10, bought a bus so he can drive his grandchildren to school every morning.

“I thought, gee whiz, maybe there’s some way that I can give them a memory that will last all their life,” Hayes explained.

The kids go to a small Christian school that does not have school buses, so when they saw him drive up in one, they were pretty excited.

The bus is named the “Grandfather Express”

“Well, there is a sense of pride and excitement. I thought, who does this? This is crazy,” Hayes said. “So, we’re so excited about it and it’s something that we are hopeful they’ll carry into their lives.”
