Christmas Bus 11/27/15
By John Schmit
I had a whole lotta fun decorating this year's Christmas Bus. There were several new stuffed animals and new animated ones too! There were new lights, that twinkle and new garland replacing worn out stuff. The passengers sure enjoyed the ride. This year I also have a bunch of 'gifts' to hand out and then there's Candy Cane Day with special larger size candy canes. Oh, what a fun season.

Metro's Battery Bus 11/18/15
By John Schmit
What a charge it was when the Battery Bus stopped at the Redmond Transit Center. A couple of drivers just had to take a look. With water tanks inside to simulate the weight of people, the prototype bus is being driven 24 hours a day to meet a mileage goal. It was fun to sit behind the wheel and get a feel for the future. Check out these pictures of the new bus.
