    AM General’s foray into the transit bus building business was not a successful venture, buses were poorly designed. prone to breakdowns, and despised by most bus drivers of that era. After a while, the poor reputation caught up with them, and most transit agencies continued to purchase new equipment from other manufacturers. This may be the only notable failure of AM General.
