East Yolo’s First Bus

The East Yolo area's first bus is shown in this rare photograph, believed taken in 1933, provided for reproduction in the News-Ledger by Walter Gibson, acting general manager of the East Yolo Community Services District. The lady at left is the late Mrs. Mary Misitich, whose duplex dwelling at the corner of 15th Street and Alabama Avenue was also headquarters for the "stage line," which carried passengers from West Sacramento, Broderick and Bryte to Sacramento and return. The bus system was later owned by the late Ernest Tyhurst of West Sacramento and Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Johnson, also of West Sacramento, before being purchased by the Gibson Lines. The lady at right is unidentified. From the News-Ledger online archive.
