There are two new busses in San Luis Obispo.
The city unveiled them today at a ribbon cutting ceremony.
They replace two older buses built in 1997.
These new vehicles incorporate the latest state-of-the-art safety features.
One bus is equipped with a luggage rack for use on routes that service the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter on Orcutt Road and the Prado Day Center.
"One of the good parts is that they were purchased with federal transit admin dollars and state Prop B bond funding so there's no general fund money allocations that were used to buy the busses," said transit manager John Webster.
Five thousand people ride the bus every day, depending on if Cal Poly is in session.
Last year, a record 1,118,000 people rode the bus.
