Standard buses were in duty
for over 30 years, until 90's on line 38.
They are now completely off duty,
replaced with new models. Our depot used for the last time one of these
models on line 67 in 2001.

Many types of buses
were tested to follow the former model, with other brands: Renault.
Il ne roulait parfois sur ligne qu'une seule voiture de la marque en
