    Whatever your take on the validity of this deal the color scheme sure beats that gawd awful green adorning the main fleet. It's enough to make you lose your breakfast as one approaches the bus stop.

    The carbon footprint of producing a new vehicle is much greater than maintaining an older vehicle. These programs to destroy working vehicles are just PR programs. Give people help to make their old cars run efficiently amnd they can obtain as good as or better consumption than new vehicles without the additional mining,transporting, processing, transporting, manufacturing on five continents, transporting, assembly, painting, and delivery that a new vehicle requires. Older cars don't have as much electronics, which is extremely toxic to the enviroment.

    That's great Metrobus,but when are YOU going to retire some of those pre-1996 buses?? For those who aren't aware,on each Metrobus there is a 4-digit number.The first 2 digits are the year the vehicle was made.Example,9258 means the bus is a 1992 model.I was behind this bus the other day and nearly choked on the fumes. By the way,Im willing to bet your 1996 car will get you where you are going a lot faster than Metrobus can.At least they were smart enough to use a newer bus for the advertising.
