Over the years, Pittsburgh’s buses have had varied liveries. For example, in the current fleet, you can find buses painted green, red, dark blue, light blue, silver, and gold. However, the Neoplan AN460s in the Port Authority of Allegheny County fleet have an added touch to them, featuring Burma Shave style poetry. For example, this bus says “This big shiny bus / Is really no riddle / But it sure is odd / How it bends in the middle.” If you are used to a standard livery being used across an entire fleet, it is quite fascinating to stand on a Pittsburgh street corner and see what color the next bus to come along is. The poetry wraps on the buses that have it is certainly an added bonus!
