How much money do bus drivers make?

I really feel bad for most bus drivers. I assume they do not make all that much money. And they have to drive the same route every day, putting up with obnoxious passengers probably. It just does not sound like a fun job. Yet, the bus drivers I know generally are incredibly nice people. They are generally male, and quite old (50 or older). I just feel so bad that these people are so nice, so old, and still making so little. I was wondering, how much money do they make? And why do they tend to be so old, not having attained any higher positions?

From $8-25 dollars an hour. It would be nice if they all made $50, but reality sucks and bus companies figure anybody with a pulse can drive, so thats my answer.
