Desert Transit Service Provider
After purchasing a retired, articulated MUNI bus (a bendy bus) on eBay, I managed the process of restoring it into a serviceable condition, crossing the Sierras and operating a single-vehicle transit agengy for seven days. The exterior was left unchanged and a series of ribs was built around the 60 foot vehicle and it was transformed into a glowing caterpillar complete with disco ball antennae, Arduino powered LED ground effects and an internal sound system. And lasers, lots of lasers.
Operations in the desert were conducted for seven days, twelve hours a day. The playapillar required a crew of three to operate as visiblity from within he caterpillar was limited and the three doors each needed a crew member to assist passengers boarding and alighting.
