Can you imagine a super-sizes bus that is 65-foot-long and carries 131 passengers??? A new giant bus will be making its debut on the Orange Line busway by next week. The new bus - a single prototype the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority is testing for one year - is comparable to a single car on the Red Line. It is in two sections with a flexible, accordian-style center, and five feet longer than the longest bus allowed by California law. Therefore the MTA had to seek an exemption from Caltrans to operate the prototype.
