Having been here in Rochester, NY for a little over a year, I've noticed that in the public transportation system (RTS) there are some buses which are much newer than others. The newest buses seem to be Gillig Advantage buses:
Here's another photo of a similar model:

Notice on the window at the front of the bus, in front of the driver and adjacent to the windshield, there's a wiper on it! Do they really need an entire wiper mechanism to cover that little bit of space? It just seems like a waste of money in terms of design and potential maintenance.
