Bus #2738 was part of a 1991 order of 65 30-foot Gillig Phantoms for AC Transit delivered in 1992.
The first 61 (#2701-2761) went to AC Transit and the last four were diverted to Benicia Transit (#9001-9004).
Bus #2738 remained in service until 2009 when it was set aside for possible donation.
#2738 was donated to the Pacific Bus Museum in June 2011. The museum is pleased to have this lift equipped Gillig representing AC Transit in the museum’s collection.
This is the newest bus in the Pacific Bus Museum’s fleet, and a great many people are familiar with it as one of their daily rides throughout the 1990s.
