PLEASANTON, Calif. --- Three 28-foot all-black Grech Motors 2015 MY shuttles are still in the younger phase of their lifespans, with only three years and about 107,000 -- 147,000 miles under the belts.

Now available on limoforsale.com at just under $40,000 each, the 19-passenger minibus and two 22-passenger ones are being sold by Black Tie Transportation, a 30+ year luxury service serving the San Francisco Bay Area and known for its exclusive use of new high-end vehicles with a strict shorter-term fleet turnover policy and "meticulous daily cleanings."

Father-son team of Bill Wheeler Sr. & Jr. have kept the buses running in immaculate condition, garnering an all 10 out of 10 rating on exterior, interior, and mechanical conditions.

Wheeler Sr. told LCT the company is replacing the GM28 buses with slightly larger GM33 models that can carry up to 23 passengers with luggage. Black Tie so far has 35 Grech-built vehicles in its fleet, from luxury Sprinters up to 40-passenger cutaway buses. Wheeler just bought four new nine-passenger corporate-style Sprinter vans with an executive seating and table configuration.

Black Tie states that all vehicle miles driven on the GM28s have been light duty shuttle service and the company inspected, washed, and detailed the buses after every week of service. These buses were outfitted with the $6,000 optional air-ride suspension, $2,000 Alcoa wheels, Michelin tires, and come with a backup alarm and backup camera.

Additional options include XM radio connectivity, automatic window shades, $3,000 premier seating, individual reading lights, 110V outlets in every row, and blue accent lighting in the cabins.
