  • Notes:

Culver CityBus currently operates an all New Flyer fleet of 54 buses. All buses run on CNG. Culver CityBus has retired its old fleet, mostly made of buses by Flxible, TMC/RTS, and Gillig.

Culver city is beginning to retire its C40lf fleet from 2001 and 2004. New 2017 XN40 coaches have arrived and are in service.

All buses are numbered 70—and 71--.

Buses were originally painted green and white, but all buses were repainted to all green in 2000.

In 2008, large decals honoring Culver CityBus's 80th year of service were affixed to buses and were later removed in 2009.

Culver CityBus began operating six New Flyer C40LFR buses on the new Rapid 6 starting on January 4, 2010.

Rapid Buses are painted primarily a chrome gray to distinguish themselves from the regular bright green buses.

In 2012, Culver CityBus took delivery of 20 New Flyer Xcelsior XN40 Buses and started operating some of them beginning in late May 2012 with the rest to be phased in by late June.[12]
