Photo of the Month – August, 2017


For the month of August, my photo contributor Dion M. took this neat photo of two Cincinnati Metro Transit buses passing each other near the heart of the city. Cincinnati Metro Transit in Cincinnati, OH still operates a line of Gillig Phantom high floor transit buses, though they are slowly being replaced by newer low floor buses.

The Gillig Phantom was once a powerhouse transit bus for many mid sized transit agencies. Because many transit agencies now favor low floor buses (due mainly to low floor buses being more wheelchair accessible), Gillig stopped production of the Phantom in 2008. The only Tampa Bay Area transit agency that still operates Gillig Phantom transit buses is Manatee County Area Transit.
