The Historic Landmarks Commission saved the last General Motors New Look Bus when it was retired in January 1992. The New Look Bus formed the backbone of the Charlotte transit fleet in the 1960s and 1970s.
The Commission is considering having the General Motors New Look Bus join Streetcar 85 at the Savona Mill site in West Charlotte. It would help interpret Charlotte’s transportation history. There is currently a lot of interest in mid-century modern design, and the New Look Bus is a good example of this type of design.
