Some of these busses were so wide it was impossible to exit the bus when inserted, so it may have been pushed in and pulled out.

 

Note the mirrors are also removed.

And there is a chain hanging from the undercarriage... The bus was pulled from the car.

Or... think of a ship in a bottle. Maybe the bus was assembled inside the car and the windshield
was the last thing to be applied. ;-)

Never mind, I found a workable link.  Sorry for the waste of list resources.

I noticed the side door of the boxcar was opened as well as a side window of the bus.  Once watched my car being parked in a Manhattan garage. The cars were parked so close together the attendants climbed in and out though open windows as there was no room to open the doors. A driver could have backed in and climbed out an open bus window through the opened freight car door.
