You are the bus driver.

At the first stop, 5 people get on. All men.

At the second stop, 6 people get on, 4 men and 2 women.

At the third stop, 3 men departs.

At the fourth stop, 2 women get on and 1 man departs.

At the fifth stop, 6 teenagers get on and one woman departs.

At the sixth stop, no one is there, so you drive on to the seventh stop, where one woman and two men depart.

At the eighth stop, the teenagers depart.

How old is the bus driver?

To be a bus driver he has to have a commercial license, so at least of that age. but as stated I am the driver so the age is 79

A Man who knows how to use his tongue is extremely useful!

Did you just have a birth anniversary that you forgot? Or did you obscure your actual birth date a bit to avoid being ID'd?

I know I did, but only by about one month

The age of the bus driver is 'Your' actual age as the first statement says that 'You' are the bus driver. I am 62 years old so IF I am the bus driver..... the bus driver is 62 years old. Cheers.

I think this is one of those teasers that works best verbally. Either that or I needed to make my list of stops a lot longer!

I as I said to GhostofH, this puzzle is probably best as a verbal puzzle, prefaced with let us do a listening exercise.

And all of you had the correct answer, although not everyone gave an age that matched what Various has. But close enough.

I'm driving the bus! God help the passengers, LOL.

Hold the bus! No, I mean wait a minute, I know that you pull bumper hitch trailers with a large SUV (after hitching up by yourself.) I think that you could handle a bus.

Now if you meant that you would be a huge distraction to the riders, I would agree. All the men would want to flirt and all the women would be jealous.
