Detroit Department of Transportation 8900-8913 is wheelchair accessible.

Detroit Department of Transportation 8900-8913 were 1989 Neoplan USA AN460 buses. Originally ordered for Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority but were unaccepted due to major changes at that agency (which included SEMTA becoming Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation), these were the only articulated buses used by DDOT up until the arrival of ten New Flyer Industries XD60 buses in 2015 and were exclusively assigned to the Shoemaker Terminal throughout their time.

After they were retired in 2002, articulated buses would not be seen on Metro Detroit streets again until SMART acquired two New Flyer DE60LF buses in 2010.

When in service, these buses were initially found on routes 21 Grand River, 25 Jefferson, 34 Gratiot, 53 Woodward and 78 Imperial Express, but towards the end of their lives they were confined to various routes across Detroit's east side.
