1980 Grumman 870/Flxible Metro 35′ & 40’FT

These vehicles were SEAT’s first buses, and were used for a short period as they were – like all 1980’s Grumman 870 buses – plagued with structural defects and were quickly retired to be replaced with the 1991 MCI TC40 buses.

*Please note that the picture provided for the 1980 Grumman 870/Flxible Metro is of a similar MTA model, not of a SEAT vehicle as we currently have none on file.
