Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority 7980-7999 is wheelchair accessible.

Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority 7980-7999 were 2002 NABI 40C-LFW CNG (040C.02) buses built in 2002-2004. They are constructed from a composite material rather than stainless steel, making them much lighter than conventional vehicles. The buses had structural and mechanical problems; at one point ten of these buses were put out of service and were stored while the other ten were at Division 8. Currently, all buses have been retired along with the others stored at Division 12. All units were originally delivered in the Metro Bus 'yellowjacket' paint scheme and were repainted in 2003-2005.
