The Mack buses came to San Francisco Municipal Railway principally because of the failure of the voters to authorize a 1953 bond issue to buy new buses, which almost certainly would have come from General Motors. Mack offered to lease its new C-49 transit buses to the MUNI under acceptable conditions and was the only bidder on the lease. The MUNI Mack's, like the other C-49s sold in California, had the shorter 274 1/2' wheelbase to meet the California's law regarding axle loading. In June-July 1957 MUNI received next 70 Macks, numbered 2300-2369 and seventy more in August-October 1958, numbered 2400-2469. They had many differences compared to the first 170 coaches delivered in 1955-56, the most noticeable was the lack of the emergency door, directional arrow turn signals and silver bumpers. As 2100/2200-series, the coaches featured the Scania-designed ENDT673 turbocharged diesel engine. Three Macks of 2300-series (2300,2301,2302) briefly ran within the San Francisco Airport in 1960 on a shuttle between terminal and distant parking lots, renumbered 1-3, painted blue and silver gray and lettered COURTESY COACH. They were based at Ocean Division.
