#9E – Joaquin Delta Junior College District

Initial Service

This Flxible two-level model 223DD-D2Flxiliner” Bus was delivered, new, to the San Joaquin Delta Junior College District in Stockton, CA in 1970 as #9E. Powered by a  GM 6-71 diesel engine, #9E is equipped with a separate 4-cylinder diesel engine to power the coach’s air-conditioning system. 

Service History

#9E spent the next 40 years transporting the college’s sports teams to games and tournaments throughout the state.

Pathway to PBM

SETRA of North America was the bus dealer for the San Joaquin Delta Junior College District. When the college district approached SETRA to trade-in their #9E for a new bus, SETRA donated #9E to the Pacific Bus Museum in February 2011.

The PBM is pleased to have this fine example of Flxible’s last intercity model in the museum’s collection. Thanks to SETRA of North America for the opportunity to acquire this coach.

What People Love

At the time #9E was built, demand for Flxible intercity type buses was down to a trickle. So, this is a fairly rare bus.
