I think one of the 2 bus lines is the M9, but I'm not sure of the other route.

 

Is it the M8?

Yes that is correct! The M8, and M9 were the only 2 routes operated by which pre-MaBSTOA private line??

That's a given, but why do models from 2 different manufacturers have the same basic design?

The vice president of GMC in 1914 was very helpful to Fixible and helped them with their designs.

 

No it's a little deeper than that..

Ain't that the same as Gmc Nova and TMC all making RTS? 3 different companies making the same bus!?

 

 

 

 

 

 

I dunno. I just wanted to say something. I truthfully dunno the answer!

It's different because it was not like the RTS situation, which actually has 4 manufactures, who produced the bus at different times. If anything, it's more like the Bombardier/Kawasaki relationship..... but not really...;)

GM was afraid of an antitrust lawsuit against their very successful line of buses, the New Looks, so they aided Flxible in producing their version, intentionally hurting their own, even providing GM engines for use in Flxible buses.

No, I just read Wikipedia all the time because I'm incredibly bored... and I visit the New Look page often... ;)

 

I know this one from Wiki too (or at least part of the answer)... Daimler Chrysler owns GMDD now, and they don't want to offer any GMDD engine in a non-Daimler vehicle... why? I don't know. :confused:

No, that's not it. They don't even offer the DD it in the Orion's anymore either. Chrysler owned DD, then DaimlerChrysler was created, and when the two companies split Daimler assumed all the assets except Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep. Now that it is Daimler AG again some things have changed.

I found from Google that..........

U.S.A., exhaust emissions from city buses fueled by diesel are not characterized well because current emission standards require engine tests rather than tests of whole vehicles. Labortories gathered realistic emission data from heavy-duty vehicles, including buses, tested in simulated driving conditions. A subset of these data has been utilized for a comprehensive introspection into the trends of regulated emissions from transit buses over the last 7 years, which has been prompted by continuously tightening restrictions on one hand, along with remarkable technological progress, on the other hand. Two widely used models of diesel engines manufactured by the Detroit Diesel Corporation (DDC) have been selected as a case-study for such an overview, based on full-scale, on-site testing of actual city buses, driven in accordance with the SAE J1376 standard of a Commercial Business District (CBD) cycle.

..............................Meaning it unfriendly?
