Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation 3003-3005 are diesel-electric hybrid Gillig BRT (G30D102N4) buses built in the early-mid summer of 2011 and delivered in August 2011. They are SMART's first 40-foot diesel-electric hybrid buses. Beginning with this order, all orders by SMART for new 40-foot vehicles have been placed for the Gillig BRT.

They were purchased using part of a $20.5 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act fund granted on August 20, 2009. They also sport a new template livery which basically features a retro-styled double-wave design on each side, similar to those used on Martin Lines' last livery before it's acquisition by the Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority in 1975, with the waves, the area above the passenger windows, above the engine door on the rear and destination sign area on the front one color and the remainder a different color. Three different color combinations are used, derived from the colors of three major Michigan universities: a green-and-gold design for Wayne State University, green-and-white for Michigan State University and maize-and-blue for the University of Michigan. Since then, this retro-styled livery template has also become the standard for SMART, with the exception of two diesel Gillig BRTs delivered in 2014.

They were formally unveiled to the public on November 1, 2011 through a Busloads of Warmth event at Oakland Mall where the public was invited to donate new or gently used cold weather gear by placing them in boxes inside their preferred bus. All three received large amounts of donations each, however, donations placed inside 3005 surpassed those placed inside the other two units. Following the event, all three were placed in service.
