B&O 80440 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. Among the special features that these buses had were the one piece windshield and the special Baltimore & Ohio raised lettering above the windows that was

'Great Light Rail!'377 viewsI know - this is a new one on me too!!
A 'New Look' GM 5300 series rigged to ride the rails!
Notice how trucks are parked similarly to landing gear.
This bus was probably used to move railroad personnel from one site to the next.

CARTA 928405 viewsTailend of a retired 35-ft 1973 GMC T6H4523A CARTA bus in Chattanooga, TN. Looks can be deceiving- this bus appears to be in fine shape but the entire front end had been completely cannibalized by CARTA (used for parts). Photo taken by Mike Gallant in May, 1998.

CARTA 954347 viewsRetired 1973 GMC T6H4523A sitting in a back lot at the CARTA facility in Chattanooga. Notice the unique square windows before the back door. All of CARTA's GMC New Looks were retrofitted with wheelchair lifts - a third door was fabricated to accomodate the wheelchair-bound. Photograph taken in May, 1998 by Mike Gallant.

304 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 is the OLDEST bus fleet in the United States. All of the GMC buses have been retrofitted with wheelchair lifts (same retrofit as CARTA GMC buses in Chattanooga, TN) so they don't get hassled by the FTA. Believe it or not- MATS only runs Mon-Fri at rush hours! No midday or weekend service at all. But the good thing is that these buses look like they're in excellent condition. This makes sense since most are probably not used at all

273 viewsAn early 1970s 35ft/96"-wide GMC New Look bus at the South Carolina Electric & Gas garage in Columbia, SC. SCE&G is one of the last utility companies owning a bus system in the United States. But more importantly, SCE&G is too "cheap" to update their fleet so Columbia residents get to see 25-30 year old buses on their city streets. Photograph taken by Mike Gallant.

287 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.
