The Los Angeles Department of Transportation inherited a few 1992 TMC RTSs from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for use on Commuter Express. Former Metro No. 1344 kept its same number running as an LADOT Commuter Express bus.
It was not modified for commuter service. It still has the local bus seating, but it did get LADOT's old-fashioned farebox. The headsigns have been turned off, and the pieces of paper on the windshield show this is a Line 423 short line to Encino.
A Foothill Transit Orion commuter bus can be seen in the background.
LADOT's Commuter Express buses are operated by Veolia.
