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.).

FIRST RTS-II COACH ARRIVED IN DETROIT 30-YEARS AGO
June 26, 2008, marked thirty continuous years of the RTS (Rapid Transit
Series) Advanced Design Bus operating along the streets of Detroit, MI.
In early 1978, the Detroit Department of Transportation (D-DOT) surveyed
its riders to gather their opinions regarding the quality of the city's bus
service. Unfortunately, the survey results were not good. However, DDOT
management took advantage of an opportunity to release the results of the
survey to coincide with the launching of its new fleet of GMC "RTS-II"
During a press conference held at the west-side Coolidge Terminal, on
Friday, June 23, 1978, DDOT unveiled its new bus fleet to the media. The
department had anticipated that the new RTS fleet would drastically improve
the quality of DDOT bus service.
This video compiles newsclips from three local newscasts (WJBK-TV2, WWJ-TV4
(now WDIV) and WXYZ-TV7) that covered the media event back in 1978.
GM's first newly designed transit bus since 1959 began service in Detroit
on Monday, June 26, 1978. The DDOT #1300-series RTS's (#1300-1369) featured
in this video were the first Model TH-8203 (second series - "Series 03")
RTS-II coaches to be manufactured by GMC Truck & Coach.

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.
