A $1.1 million bus purchased by the Secret Service is being used by US President Barack Obama during his three-day economic bus tour, several international news sites reported on Tuesday, August 16, 2011.

The bus was described by MSNBC as impenetrable-looking conveyance the size of a cross-country Greyhound. It has dark tinted windows, flashing blue and red lights, and painted in black.

Ed Donovan, Secret Service spokesman, reportedly said that the bus was not purchased solely for the president and would be used for other dignitaries in the future.

Furthermore, Donovan said that two buses were purchased in which one is being used by Obama. Other officeholders and candidates will be using both buses in the future.

As for the bus’ design and capability, Donovan declined to comment. The money used for purchasing the bus was taken from a fund for transportation and armored vehicles, reports said.
