The RTs in service are made primarily of wood under metal panelling. Every 20-25 years, the wood within the double deck frame rots, and needs to be replaced. RT 742 and RT 1235 are currently undergoing frame restoration. RTL 1014 has recently completed its restoration, and will return to service Spring 2005.<br> + <br> + RT 2819 is most likely the only RT Double Deck bus in the world to run on Compressed Natural Gas. As RT 1235 is restored, the bus will also be converted to CNG.<br> + <br> + RTL 1014 and RT 742 have been preserved in their original form. The engines powering these two buses are original, and both maintain a unique shifting system known as "Pre-Select Shifting", where the gear is chosen before the clutch is applied. These buses, aside from minor updates such as clearance lights which are mandated by the US Department of Transportation, are in essence original.<br> + <br> + Though a symbol of Unitrans, UC Davis, and the City of Davis, the double deck bus is only a small portion of the Unitrans Fleet. 90% of the buses running in revenue service run on Compressed Natural Gas. Additionally, due to restrictions imposed upon Yolo and Sacramento Counties by the California Air Resources Board, Unitrans will move to a completely "alternative-fuel" fleet by the end of 2007, retiring all of the Gilligs from service.<br> + <br> + Unitrans' signature color is red. The fleet originally followed a different color scheme, the red being unique to the double deck buses. The single decks were originally white with red and blue stripes, to match the "New Look" GMC buses of the time. The fleet moved to a completely red color scheme in April 1995, with the arrival of the Orion Mark V buses. All new buses now follow this color scheme, the better to blend with the signature Double Deck Red.<br> + <br> + ==Fleet History==<br> + Unitrans Fleet has evolved many times over the past 40 years. Unitrans continued to acquire RT Double Deckers, and at one point possessed nine in total. The number was reduced to six as three were sold over the years. Also operated in service were Daimler 40 Foot double decks. These were retired due to the expense and time required to maintain them in working order.<br> + <br> + To update the fleet, Unitrans acquired several "New Look" 35 foot GMC buses from San Diego, and continued to operate these buses until 1994. Also purchased were several 35 and 40 foot buses from the now-defunct company "Flxible" (Now absorbed into Motor Coach Industries). These buses were purchased used from Sacramento Regional Transit. Unitrans also acquired two "Prison Bus" GM buses from Sacramento Regional Transit.<br> + <br> + In the 1980s, the aging Flxible fleet was retired, and replaced with five new 35 foot Gillig Phantoms. Over this time period, Unitrans acquired two 40 foot Gillig Phantoms from YoloBus, and two 30 foot Gillig Phantoms from the UC Davis Transportation and Parking Services.<br> + <br> + With the aging of the fleet, and with pressure from the CARB, Unitrans in 1992 acquired fifteen brand-new 35 and 40 foot buses from Orion Bus Industries of New York. These buses, powered entirely by Compressed Natural Gas, marked the move from diesel fuel to alternative fuels. Additionally, the change in color scheme from white to red was marked by the purchase of these buses.<br> + <br> + In order to retire the aging GM fleet, a deal with Bluebird Bus Industries was made in 1994, and ten medium-duty transit buses were acquired from the "school-bus company". These buses were also powered by Compressed Natural Gas.<br> + <br> + Federal funds allowed Unitrans to acquire five brand new Orion Mark VII buses in 1999, featuring the new "low-floor" design, with the intention of allowing greater passenger loads and better accessibility to all passengers.<br> + <br> + Unitrans is acquiring four new Orion Mark V in 2006. Additionally, the purchase of two 40' Alexander-Dennis Enviro500 double-deck buses is being considered.<br> + <br> + ==Interesting Details==<br> + Unitrans' affectionate title for the Bluebirds (Chaos Theory) is quite apt. Bluebird's foray into urban transit buses was spectacular in its failure. For each bus Unitrans received, a separate wiring schematic was necessary. Additionally, each bus is designed with the CNG tanks on the bottom of the bus, creating an issue during hot summer months with fuel capacity (Bluebird's maximum range in the summer is barely 150 miles, whereas an Orion has a maximum range upwards of 275 miles), and the inherent danger of combustible fuel travelling along on the bottom of the bus.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
