Not sure how long it take to repaint all the buses like this but it looks nice. They needed a change especially since their getting new articulated buses that look better with this paint job.

An articulated bus is one of the double length ones that look like an accordion in the middle.

That is a really nice design, it's so classy. :thumbsup2

Their adding bus stops to mk and making stops that can fits the articulated bus since they have three sets of doors. It a nice color it matches the driver uniform but going from a white bus to a his with color I am sure will take some time to get use to.

They used to be brown and orange stripes on a white background. The current design has been around for close to 20 years but is not the first. The first ones were REALLY dull LOL.

But the irony to that is a couple of the Bus Drivers I was talking to told me that they are getting new uniforms!!! I often 'tease' about how I miss the purple pants! And wish they would bring them back and many drivers say they liked them much better than the current ones as these are wool and very hot and heavier. This time the 'purple' came up because my trip was just around the Ravens winning a spot to the Superbowl and I am from MD and when they asked the traditional 'where are you from...' while they are loading you... and then the whole Ravens thing. Well it just evolved into a purple discussion. LOL

Oh they must complain and Disney listening when they got the new uniform I talked to a driver on the dis. Told him I am sure he was happy to get rid of the purple then he told me their not as bad as when they had the brown uniforms. They didn't like the new hat either that why most chose to wear a white hat he liked my idea of a hat that had all the buses Disney used like a time line. I wonder what the new ones will look like I also suggested they get shirts but he said no they shouldn't.

I also think they should paint each bus different color strip like monorail or nova one color gillig another color and the articulated a different color.

I think Disney painted it to make it more safe at night because looking online at some night shots and the red pops out so you see it more. So I wondering if they had to make it more visible which if they did that good. Anyway they could make the roads safer and the buses safer I good with he new paint scheme. I just read on another site they did put red vinyl reflective paint on the buses to improve the safety for the cms and guests it will also match the new uniforms their rolling out soon. they should have all the bus repainted by the summer.

Red is one of the least visible colors at night, one of the reasons why they tried to change fire trucks to yellow many years back. It has to do with the part of your eye which sees in low light being least sensitive to red. I think the red is probably asthetics only, which is why they especially need the relective tape.

It red vinyl reflective paint the pic they have at night With the flash you see the red stand out even the tansport part in red bright then the Disney part. Your right my fire depart a lime green and they stand out more the other departments that are red. The red as you said is covering the reflective during the day they need a color that would interfere with the reflective but also not make it stand out during the day.
