I used to work at RTA travel info and a fellow employee liked taking pics of busses and before I left he gave me some of his snapshots.

The first one looks like the 1980s GMC "New Look" fishbowl busses. We still have about 5 of those running routes here. The other ones I don't recognize though. . .

Oddly my city uses the 1975 fish bowl for 1/3 of it'* fleet.
The 2004 Nabi for another 3rd and the 2004 Nabi Articulated for the final third.
