They are in the process of upgrading their fleet to the Prevo XJ-45 models.

I must say they are gorgeous and if I can I can take some pictures of them and have them posted. Stunning colors Blue\Grey scheme and a sharp silvery, Chromy running greyhound on the side, and rear.

The "Greyhound" font they use is definitely a nod to Greyhounds beginnings.

Had to post here first on these and I"m not a huge fan of Prevost, but man these buses are nice!

Ken,

I'll put a little light on the subject for you.

I have to agree - it is a gorgeous bus!

I agree with both of you. Mr. L put another picture up of the new livery on one of his jaunts in LA.

Its a dyamic change from the predomiately blue and white combinations they have been using for what seems like forever. It is also a nice way to welcome in a new bus manufacturer and perhaps put a new face on the company

If they want to throw a P.R. bone to the adoring enthusiasts: It should post a download on its site of the font, for free non- commercial use!

That is such a gorgeous bus I can hardly wait till the Prevost shows up on the Batavia-Buffalo run. I'd love to step aboard one and enjoy the short trip to Buffalo. That livery is really great. I think there is hope for Greyhound Lines yet. Not to take anything away from the MCI DL3, but this is a bus I MUST ride on when the chance arises.
