DID YOU KNOW :
From September 1, 2003 through June 30, 2004, GLI spent 6 million dollars on Bus Parts alone.
Why so much ?
1. Part Swapping is the most popular means of troubleshooting.
2. Drivers have a tendency to hit every sign, parking stop, or other bus within ten feet.
3. G's are Junk. Imagine if so many weren't under warranty during that time span.
