The nick-name of "The Big Bus" was "Cyclops". It was so-called due to the bus' solo large front headlight. See more »
When they are loading the bus for the trip that begins in Midtown Manhattan, the bus is parked near a bus terminal. The only bus terminal in Midtown Manhattan is Port Authority Bus Terminal. The terminal used in the movie is not the Port Authority Bus Terminal. See more »

A disaster-movie spoof before Airplane! and just as funny!
This film is a disaster movie spoof that pre-dates Airplane! It's about a giant nuclear-powered bus complete with a bowling alley and pool. Very very funny, okay, not as funny as Airplane!, but better than Airplane 2. The scene in the milk bar where two bus drivers fight with broken milk cartons is great, lots of goofy characters, great cast. Ruth Gordon! Stockard Channing! Richard Mulligan! Lots of 70's fun!
