    This mod will be great for West Coast USA...as an Urban Tour bus. Kinda like the ones in New York City.

    Those are triaxle Enviro500s (first gen) based on the Volvo B9TL chassis - basically this one, with an extra axle.
    Note that since this uses the B7TL chassis, it will be used for different bus bodies in future also. :D
    Those would be Wright Gemini 3s based on the Volvo B5TL or B5LH chassis depending on whether it's a hybrid or a regular turbodiesel.

    Someone else is actually making the RM at the moment, but I don't think they want anyone to know about it. So I won't name them :p

    As for my bus, it's coming together well.
    upload_2018-10-20_10-15-52.png
    As you can see here, it is much shorter than the Wentward, but over twice as tall. It is basically exactly the same width.
    upload_2018-10-20_10-17-1.png
    The JBeam is nowhere close to being done, but it is getting there very nicely.
    upload_2018-10-20_10-19-44.png

    But another thing I didn't mention - only trusted people on my Discord server will be getting betas for this bus before release, to keep it safe and avoid conflict.

    So, if you're a trustworthy/reputable mod-maker who's honest, won't leak my betas, and wants to try relatively regular betas before release (of this and my other future mods), my Discord server is the place to be. Check my sig if you're interested.

    Everything that's on the Wentward, this will have too. Airbags and doors are a given. Though it will be flipped to the other side, and kneel on the left - because this will be RHD.

    Just a side note, forgot to mention this:
    The standard stair configuration is at the Front - Middle-staired is different, and is in the center of the bus.
    Front:

    Middle:

    And rear-staired versions will be at the back, in front of the engine - like a Routemaster.

    Did a rear staired version actually exist? Or is that fictional?

    I'm surprised the Hero version didn't get the most votes in the poll. :p

    The bus has been re-named to the Griffin Comet, as I didn't really like the old name.

    In other news, the roof is on, and parts of the sides are too. the JBeam is much better.

    I must stress too, so that people don't take this wrong, that me and @Blijo are not competing whatsoever with our buses. In fact, we're working together on several things.
