'Advanced Technology Transit Bus' is made with materials similar to those used in Northrop Gruman's B-2 Stealth Bomber.
Was 'rolled-out' in October, 8, 1996, but, of course, didn't attract so much attention as stealth bomber itself. Price tag is an interesting question, as well as what concrete B-2 technology was implemented...

Mostly composites experience applied to simplifying and lightening the bus structure while designing the bus to be readily adapatable to alrternate powerplants.
