New AC Transit Buses Feature Wi-Fi, Storage, Comfy Seating

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — AC Transit introduced 16 new state of the art coaches Friday for transbay commuters that include free wi-fi, individual reading lamps, low floors, overhead storage and high-back seats.

The coaches are the first of 54 purchased by AC Transit to serve Line E, which travels between Berkeley and San Francisco.

“They are great looking buses and they offer a great way to get to work,” said AC Transit Board President Greg Harper in a statement. “They are precisely what we hoped they would be. They are ideal for the transbay commutes.”

The buses were built by Gillig, a Hayward-based company, officials said.
