It’s an aging NeoPlan AN460, #6252:
It’s coolant, lubricant, something like that.
But what if this area were to have an icon – what could possibly symbolize District One? Now, the nearby Sunset District has its marijuana grow houses and brothels, of course, but what’s similarly unique to the Richmond?
My vote is for the big old NeoPlan AN 460 articulated bus – you know, the one used by the #38 Geary line:
Of course these artic bendy buses are all over town but I associate them with the Richmond District most of all.
Look at this monster bus temporarily blocking San Francisco’s Market Street near 3rd Street Mayor Willie Brown Way – it must not be easy driving a 60-foot-long Neoplan AN460 on the 14 Mission or the 9 San Bruno lines.
Cause if you miss the acute turn from Willie to Market outbound, you got to back her up, and that means you need spotters to help you out. As here.

I’d rather drive the shorter buses on the 37 Corbett, personally.
