D-dot's New Flyer D40LF bus #3905 on Route 78 Imperial
UPDATE: After 54 years of service, Route 78 Imperial Express (Limited) is now discontinued, eliminated and history due to increased low passenger ridership and drastic service cuts.
Sorry about that folks; my first Windows Media movie with the D-dot's transportation wasn't to good so I had to take it off my video gallery so forgive me on that because this is my first time that I'm trying something new anyway.
Well, anyhoo, here is D-dot's 2004's New Flyer D40LF bus#3905 operating on Route#78 Imperial/Grand River(Limited/Express).
Engine: Detroit Diesel Series 50 EGR
Transmission: Allison B400R 5 or 6 speed auto
Due to budget problems that happened in 2005, Route 78 has been slated down to rush-hour traffic hours only(which means Route 78 no longer runs all day from 9:00a.m. to 3:00p.m.).

D-DOT SERVICE ISSUES BACK IN THE DAY [Video-2]
Although bus service in Detroit has improved tremendously in recent years,
things have not always been rosy for D-DOT (the city of Detroit's
transportation department). Over the years —— beginning around the
mid-1970s and well into the mid-to-late'80s —— the city's transit
system would encounter numerous obstacles and would struggle to maintain
In this video clip from the Summer of 1978, WJBK-TV2 "Eyewitness News"
takes a first-hand look at some of the service problems facing Detroit bus
riders, as reporter Robbie Timmons (now with WXYZ-TV) takes a bus ride on
the D-DOT #23 Hamilton bus route. Her bus trip begins at the Northland Mall
Shopping Center in suburban Southfield and ends at the ol' Tiger Stadium
ballpark in Downtown Detroit.
This is the second in a series of upcoming videos from back in the day.
Other videos will look at the continuing struggles the city's transit
department faced, and their attempts to overcome those issues.

Another shot of the new bus fleet from outside to the inside. Good shot of
the front and back doors and some window action (open and close). Too bad
on these buses the drive lock is on both doors so no more driving with the
front doors open.
