Least Bumpiest Part of Bus

    What is the least bumpiest spot on a bus? Specifically a yellow, single-decked, "transit" school bus, although I think this could apply to most, if not all, buses.

    The middle, equidistant between the front and rear axles.

    The bumpiest spot is the back of the bus behind the rear axle.

    Somewhere around the bus's centre of gravity.
