Found bus token machine in clean out of deceased bus driver’s home



Bus Token Machine from Basement Clean Up in NY City

Bus token machine found in basement clean-up job in NYC


Some pieces of garbage aren’t worth saving, but this bus fare machine was the token piece of trash.

Two years ago, my crew and I were hired to clean out a bus driver’s home after he died. When I saw this bus token machine, I had to have it immediately. The driver received the machine at a retirement party, one of his relatives said.

People always ask me, “Why do you save this stuff?” I always tell them the same thing: It’s a vision. I save things to restore history — to display it.
