Maybe an extra coat of paint will help hold them together?
Well it does make the old buses look a hell of a lot nicer on the outside. It's all bout image!
It still looks, well, old. Many of the modern transit buses these days are low-floor models, and according to online sources Gillig has long since discontinued the Phantom model.I also realized that it is the 1442, which is the bus that used to be in the background of "Driver of the Year" ads and was featured on TriMet magnets. At one point there was an ad with Fred Hansen leaning against a MAX station sign with the phrase "How can we make TriMet work better for you?" Someone scrawled on it "fire management!" (Please note: I personally discourage graffiti.)
I'd look at the inside of the bus to see if the "image" carried through to the passenger side of things...but it was on the 9 and I really didn't want to go to Gresham. Surprisingly, no one has assigned the bus to the 94...at least the 94 that I ride.
