Last time we looked at some GM (later GMC) New Look “Fishbowl” buses from East Coast operators. This time around we are going to look at some random ones from the West Coast. I don’t know the exact year and model numbers of all of these, so think of these more as a look at liveries. There will be several more of these posts since there are a lot I have drawn up and want to draw up. The hard part is finding good references. We start in Portland, Oregon with TriMet.
Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District, AC Transit for short, serves the San Fransisco Bay Area counties of Alameda and Contra Costa.
The San Francisco Municipal Railway, MUNI, operates public transit in the Bay Area city. In 1975 famed designer Walter Landor designed this striking livery and logo. The livery was long lived and replaced in the 2000s with something boring, but they kept the iconic logo.
A variation of the Landor livery was used by some buses to celebrate the American Bicentennial in 1976.
MUNI created this frankenbus that was damaged in an accident with the front end from a former New York City Transit Authority bus.
