B&O 80448 viewsThis photo shows Baltimore & Ohio bus #80 parked in front of their Rockefeller Center terminal on 49th St. The terminal is partially visible to the left of the bus. These buses, manufactured by White Motors were a special edition (model #1136) that were built just for the B & O, although other carriers could purchase them as well if they so desired.

310 viewsI briefly visited Montgomery, Alabama to check out the Montgomery Area Transit System (MATS) and was suprised to see that this bus fleet is entirely 1974 and 1976 (counted 38 buses) GMC Fishbowl buses.

This makes sense since most are probably not used at all

281 viewsAn early 1970s 35ft/96"-wide GMC New Look bus at the South Carolina Electric & Gas garage in Columbia, SC.

296 viewsThe tailends of two GMC New Looks for SCE&G(South Carolina Electric & Gas) in Columbia, SC. If I'm not mistaken, the middle bus is a 1968 GMC- as revealed by the '68 style tail lights. Take notice of the unpainted RTS bus. Most of the newer SCE&G vehicles in the fleet [RTS and Gillig equipment] has no paint schemes (stripes/markings)- just plain white buses.
