I'm thinking that if there are going to be new shuttles that they should go the route of public busses and go with hard plastic seats. No need for cushy high back seats for a 5 minute trip, plus they'll hold up a lot better. One of the reasons the backsides of the seats are all messed up is that people put their feet up on them. Given the nature of the usage (high volume, short duration trips), I think they would do better to make them more durable. Just think what would happen if they put upholstered seating in the parking lot trams.
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary... Impossible is nothing."

If it is not Disney, I would presume it would be Coach USA, they handle the ART system, the Disneyland Express Airport service, and the Grey Line Tour services. They are based a few blocks away, and already provide shuttles if Disney opens the Buzz Lightyear lot. So it sounds like Coach USA got the contract. The service can be a lot more flexible, as they can add more buses if needed.
supershuttle has no one to blame but themselves. If they gave us some good busses then there wouldnt be a problem. You know busses with **gasp* air conditioning or heater and seats with actual padding. The drivers are great but they cant blame disney for losing their jobs they can only blame their own supershuttle
Coach USA is training staff to run the routes. They take over Saturday.
The huge charter bus is a little overkill, though. However, with many companies running super-duty due to the strike, they go with what they have. I believe we are to recieve the busses that usually run on the Gray Line (the decorated ones, if you know what I'm talking about)
