Cayey-Cidra Fishbowl Operation in PR is no more...

Posted by wruizjr on Sun May 6 02:36:57 2012

The company running the two GMC Fishbowls (A 40 foot 67' Surburban and a 35 foot 70's transit) have removed them from active service. On a recent trip to PR. One of the drivers told me they became "too old", and they have been replaced with school buses.

In AMA news, looks like almost all of the RTS's are done, I only saw 2 still running, everything else is mostly Orion V & VII NG and some NF DE35LF's throw in. Intercity Transit still runs its baby Flxible between Caugas and Rio Piedras.

That's a crime in itself.

UGH! That's some of the sadest news I've heard in a while. I'm so glad I got to ride on them a couple of years back. Those guys tore through the mountains with those fishbowls. I wonder if the yard still has the full collection though. From what I remember they had at least 13 of them.

What type of school buses were they?
