The Neoplan USA N416A was a high-floor transit bus sold in the United States. It was Neoplan's "New Look" offering, referencing the traditional and more utilitarian buses produced in the 1960's. By the end of the 1970's, transit agencies were issuing specifications for Advanced Design Buses (ADB) as defined by the Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA).[1] These buses were the General Motors RTS and the Grumman Flxible 870. Neoplan's ADB offering was the Transliner, which would eventually become their sole transit offering.
