Buses
A 1982 GMC "local" bus, and a classic MCI "express" bus (used for longer-distance commuting). Both are modeled after New York City's MTA buses.
About this creation
Looking for my VW Microbus?

Hello again, I've been busy... I created two New York City MTA busses. The first is a GMC city bus, with 2 sets of doors (front and rear) and a lower profile.   These are used as crosstown locals here in Manhattan. The second is an MCI "express bus", used to get people from the other islands into Manhattan.  It is taller, has 6 wheels, and a ridged metal bottom. The Brickshelf™ folder is full of pictures of the two of them, as well as some Real-Life snapshots of these buses.

   This is the GMC "local" city bus. It has two sets of doors (front and rear), is lower to the ground, and has ads on the sides. This is the type of bus that has low, plastic seats, grab bars for standing riders, and wide walkways.

   This gizmo attaches into the front shell of the GMC Local bus. It contains the steps up, the drivers' seat, the dash-mounted bus number, and the metrocard reader.

   This is the MCI "express" bus. It has the classic "ridged metal" lower half . This type of bus usually has high-seatbacks inside and is meant for longer trips with less stops.

Very good bus models, both are really smart. I've recently joined MOC and have a couple of buses on my creations if you're interested in looking? Well done, the detail is good and they look very realistic, as someone previously mentioned, the Bus in the film 'Speed'. Nice one! Bob.

You just need an other type of windscreen, just buy LEGO's own bus in the soccer segment to get it. It's what I used to make my bus.
