GMC TMC RTS BUS 1989 Diesel Bus

Vehicle Description: 1989 GMC TMC RTS MODEL T80206 40 foot, 39 passenger, Diesel Engine Bus

This auction is for a selection of one (1) of several buses up for sale. If you would like to purchase more than one bus, please email me.
EXCELLENT CONDITION! Used, but well maintained according to factory service schedules, by factory trained, licenced Union mechanics, using OEM parts!!  These were long haul commuter buses, NOT inner City buses! Bus(es) were driven directly to their current location from the SF bus yard auction in January 2005 and have been in storage since.  Former Golden Gate Transportation vehicles and well maintained to factory and CAL OSHA standards. Vehicle batteries (4) seem to be discharged and will need to be jumped, charged or replaced.   One sample bus was selected at random recently, started, run and all systems checked out fine.

The Rapid Transit Series (RTS) bus is a long-running series of transit buses originally manufactured by General Motors (the last generation of that company's long bus heritage) First produced in 1977, the RTS was GMC's entry into the Advanced Design Bus project and is the descendent of GMC's entry in the U.S. Department of Transportation's "Transbus" project. The RTS is notable for it's futuristic styling featuring a curved body and window panels and the design has become timeless as its predecessor.  RTS-08 (1989-94): Easily spotted by the radically different front end and the presence of a slide-glide front door; the front door has been widened, resulting in a completely redesigned, flatter windshield.

Perfect for ONE/Red & Tan 99S Service. Instead of cutting runs, it would be nice to make up for the out of service buses. Those would compliment the line nicely.

Speaking of ONE/R&T, several upstate Coach USA garages closed last month (Coach USA CNY, Coach USA WNY, and two others)---why werent some of those buses sent down to R&T (or Rockland, with R&T getting some of Rockland Coaches' state buses?)
