San Luis Obispo officials unveiled the city’s new double-decker bus on Tuesday.
The $844,000 bus, paid for mostly through federal grants, begins service today.
City officials said the bus seats 81 people and enabled the city to replace two older buses.
The 14-foot-high vehicle will reduce emissions and serve riders on busy routes, including Cal Poly students, said City Manager Katie Lichtig.
Never miss a local story.
No city general fund money was used to purchase the bus, which also received local funds from the Air Pollution Control District and a state Proposition 1B Bond, said John Webster, the city’s transit manager.
