Example Citations:
It's happy hour at T. B.'s Pub, but the place is almost empty. The real party is happening just steps away on a smoke-filled red school bus parked beside the bar in a gritty, working-class part of northwest Edmonton.
This is the "butt bus," a place for bar patrons to light up between pints of Molson Canadian and Bud.

Burke rustproofed a former school bus with red paint, put a string of lights on it and added a heater and insulation. His patrons endearingly refer to it as "Puff the Magic Wagon," or the "Butt Bus."

Earliest Citation:
Franco Magnifico figured he had the city's smoking bylaw beat.
If his customers were no longer allowed to smoke inside his hotel bar, he'd provide them with a terrific option. Rather than annoy the neighbours with inebriated riff raff and stray butts everywhere, he'd keep everyone happy. A responsible bar owner worries about these kinds of things.
So Magnifico, owner of the St. Boniface Hotel, played by the rules and put up no-smoking signs inside his infamous Club St. B. Then he spent $500 on an old school bus, parked it in front of his establishment and told patrons they had their own smoking section.
