#9049 – Yosemite Community College

Initial Service

Transportation Manufacturing Company (TMC) MC-9 #9049 was one of a group of 22 buses (#8038-9059) delivered to Greyhound Lines West in December 1984.

Service History

In 1991 bus #9049 was acquired from Greyhound by the Yosemite Community College District along with a second MC-9, GLW #9050. Both buses were renumbered 1502 and 1504 respectively. The college district reseated #9049 and #9050 from 47 to 43 passengers to improve the comfort of the district’s athletic teams.

Pathway to PBM

After operating for the college district for over 20 years #9049 was acquired by the Pacific Bus Museum in 2015 from Yosemite Community College through the generosity of museum members who donated the funds to acquire the bus.

What People Love

#9049 is powered by a Detroit Diesel 6V92 engine and an Allison 740 Automatic transmission.
