Hastie Bus on display


Come by the museum and check out Johnnie Hastie's first bus. This 1928 Chevrolet bus provided the Morongo Basin's first motorized public transportation service and was known as the 29 Palms Stage and Express.

To preserve this historic precursor to our current Morongo Basin Transit Authority (MBTA), the 29 Palms Historical Society acquired the remains of this bus, and then established a committee to restore it.
