President Obama waves from his bus today during a three-day tour of the Midwest.

Fun facts about the President’s sleek new bus: It is one of two identical buses purchased by the Secret Service to avoid past issues with setting up security in a leased bus. One of the $1.1 million buses will also be used for the eventual Republican presidential nominee, as well as other future dignitaries.

The charter bus has become the transportation vehicle a la mode. Jet planes and trains are solast season. But who’s got the nicest set of wheels?
