And on request, the driver will lower the bus…to the kneeling position I presume. I’ve never seen a bus on its knees or put another way, a kneeling bus, as if in prayer. I guess the driver would have to deflate the front tires, making it a low riding bus. Another interpretation could be that the driver, like Atlas, has hoisted the bus onto his shoulders prompting terrified passengers to issue a panicked plea for the driver to gently lower the bus. Gently is key as weightlifters generally throw the weights down in triumph or disgust.
