    New Paint

    The new bus design was spotted today in the Magic Kingdom bus loop.

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Yuck...

    Saw that pic back in January. I was hoping it wasn't the real deal.

    I'm not impressed. Looks like any 'ole urban bus with a name slapped on it.

    I'm not a fan, but as long as it drops me at the front gate in twenty days and allows me to avoid the tram/TTC/monorail gauntlet I can cope.

    It's not so bad. I've seen a lot worse. Think I could get used to it as long as it takes me where I want to go.

    I don't really care about bus design as long as it gets me from Point A to Point B.

    Paint job is new. The photo itself looks like it was taken in the 70's.

    They touched it up to give it a retro look.

    The original photo is out there.

    Ahh. Thanks, Scott. For a second there, I thought cell phone cameras were taking a step backwards. Glad it really was touched up for the retro look. Good find on the original photo.

    Re: New Paint

    Yeah, you almost have to wonder if the person that retouched the original did so in a tongue-in-cheek manner.

    Nice job nonetheless, though.

    The bus reflects in during the night and the color appears to be totally different after dark. Since there are so many different models of buses in service, there are many versions of paint variations out now, though all very similar.
