The Omnibus is not just the local public transportation
you see hauling disparate wageslaves from their bleak
neighborhoods to their bleak workplaces. Omni Motors
markets versions of the Omnibus for urban mass transit,
high-capacity urban mass transit, long-distance mass
transit, rural mass transit, personal luxury transit, cargo
hauling, livestock hauling, and an off-road version of any
of those with their patented Oct-O-Gone drive system.
The OOG is an eight-wheel-drive system with independent
motors for each oversized wheel and a massive
suspension system. The OOG is not street legal in any
major metroplex, but when you have the OOG you don’t
need streets. Part of the OOG package is a SolarCell system
to keep it charged in the wilds. Okay, that last bit is a
little copy-paste from the catalog, but I liked it.
The great thing about the Omnibus is its versatility
and changeability. The drive system and box are two independent
pieces, and changes can be made by a single
individual in about an hour, faster if you really know
what you’re doing and you have a team to help out.
Omni did this so mass-transit companies could quickly
change out boxes during rush hour times when comfort
was sacrificed for the bottom line. It was also marketed
for metroplexes and countries that have urban and offroad
areas butted up against one another for the OOG
switch-out on the edge of civilization.
