Buses in Cuba

Recommended Posts

Just got back from Cuba. They are slowly retiring the oldest buses in Cuba. The two top carriers Transtur and transgaviota are getting newer yutong buses(flatter,squarer front and rear caps, different side mirrors larger overall)and the ones that were replaced look like they are going to the local transit (Trans Metro). Seen one truck and trailer bus from afar so can't tell what it was used for. A ton of new  artics too for Trans Metro as well. Defiantly modernizing transit in Cuba. Been going the last three years and the older stuff is slowly going away. Been all over the island.

Are there any European busses in Cuba

Many, mostly second hand. Most new buses in Cuba are assembled locally from Chinese CKD kits.

Just got back from Cuba.   Didn't see any fishbowls.

I showed a bunch of local taxi and bus drivers pictures of a STM fishbowl and they all said one still runs in Matanzas.  I tried looking for it but didn't have any luck.  The only other info I have is it frequents the local hospital.  Not sure if it's a shuttle bus or on a route.

Did you ask them about the parts for the new looks? do they have trouble importing them?
