NFTA_6020.jpg
NFTA 6020247 viewsThis was part of a 110 bus order for the NFTA in 1984. The original paint, including the black trim that was standard for GM at that time can be seen here. Also note the door side mirror. The NFTA was one of a few agencies who "flipped" this mirror for easier access to adjustability. These mirrors were reverted back to their original positions after spot mirrors were installed in the early 1990s.
GMC_6108.jpg
NFTA 6108276 viewsThis was the last appearance of the 6000-series RTS buses. In 1988, the NFTA began an aggressive repainting program for all of the RTS and 700-series Orion I buses. The 5000-series were included in this program which enabled them to be matched with the current (at that time) livery and this also eliminated the black trim at the rear of the bus.
