Front Wheel Skirts on LA Metro Bus

Hello -

I saw a FRONT wheel skirt on an LA Metro bus this morning. I did some googling and found that someone had already started a thread on this on another forum (where RobertSmalls is a member) :

Front Wheel Shirts/Spats - Insight Central: Honda Insight Forum - July 4th, 2009


This type of bus was already in service without front wheel skirts. This implies to me that it's economical to have front wheel skirts. I think the bus manufacturer would have justified the front wheel skirt for MPG benefit.

Or, maybe it's just aero-bling?

In any case, getting some pix of the setup would be really cool. If I ever find one parked, I will ask the driver to turn the wheelz for me.
