Not my current local transit system, but I used Madison County Transit back when I was going to college in Edwardsville. The campus was kinda spread out so they had a regular shuttle that went from the campus apartments to central campus. I had a car so I could have driven, but I was also frequently broke so taking the shuttle saved gas.



^ These were the buses they had when I went there. I tried to find a picture of a bus that was actually on my old campus but no joy.




According to a cursory image search, they seem to have upgraded their fleet in the past 10 years. Here's what they're operating now:
