The Chiva Bus

Relationship: Im/migrant

Sometimes this vehicle is used to transport passengers. They are ladder trucks, also known as “chivas” or “lines”, and are cargo trucks decorated in an artisanal way for public transport in rural places. The authorities sometimes say they are overcrowded. But that is like transport in New York, too.
