Recipient of tip: Yours truly.

Description: "Note that the bus did say 'Not In Service'; green; has silvery streaks above entry door; not articulated; new exterior design; bus has a rounded back".

Feelings on said bus: "TBD (waiting until launch on January 4th); but the Local 6 is pretty snappy, given it travels along a congested street."

What is what: Culver CityBus launches the Rapid version of Line 6 (UCLA-Green Line Station, along Sepulveda) on January 4th.
