Palm Coast's double decker bus, dubbed the 'Get to Know Us' bus and which was once part of the London Transport Fleet
provided a real European touch and much fun at a recent open house held at the Daytona International Speedway.
Captain Kevin Fearon, formerly with the Merchant Marine and now the head of Palm Coast's "Fleet," drove the bus around
the two-and-one-half-mile tri-oval and in a few hours had carried about 1,800 people.
The Bus was retired from the London Transport Fleet after putting in about 1,000,000 miles on London routes. It was then
acquired and rebuilt by Palm Coast.

( We brought this to the School Boards' attention and the Council since there is a Problem with Transporation in Palm
Coast. In our opinion we thought 'Diesel Engines/ Bus Engine Repair would be worth considering adding to the Vocational
Program; and that getting back Palm Coast's Bus and / or Palm Coasts' Trolleys would perhaps help a little with the
Transportation Problem. )
We will let the Future Researchers seek out how the element of the Transportation problems in/around 2008 was addressed
in this Planned Community. In early 2008 a person could not sign up for Flagler County Transport unless a vacancy came up
through a death or someone moved away. We could not sign up or even get a reply to our many E-mails requesting information
on Public Transportation.
