It’s on the wiki and been that way for about two years now if I’m not mistaken.

Oh oops haha guess it's been that long since I've seen it

It was painted two different shades of green in the summer of 2018 to demo the RapidBus livery, then re-painted to the charcoal livery in October 2018, so it’s been that way for 3 and a half years, not 2 like I originally said. Why they didn’t just wrap it is beyond me.

1, 12024 was a Demo Rapidbus scheme only meant to use for promotional material.

2, RTC doesn't operate any other rapidbus.

3 Just repainting it would be better.

But wouldn’t a wrap be quicker and cheaper anyway? They knew the bus wasn’t going to stay 2 different shades of green, so why waste time and effort painting it twice instead of just using a temporary wrap?

You almost got it. 12024 was painted in the two-tone green to demonstrate the different shades. Essentially to see which shades would look best. Then sample it to a small crowd. Think of it as... a really... REALLY big paint sample.

And to add on, it wasn't used for any promotional material, only as an internal demonstration.
