Greyhound it ain’t.

The U.S. Secret Service has purchased a new $1.1 million bus that President Barack Obama is using for his travels through the Midwest, the Associated Press reported.

The AP described the bus as “an impenetrable-looking conveyance the size of a cross-country Greyhound, painted all in black, with dark tinted windows and flashing red and blue lights.”

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told the AP the bus wasn’t purchased solely for the president and would be used for other dignitaries. He said the agency also purchased a second bus.

He told AP that the Secret Service was overdue for some buses for protections of politicians traveling around the country by bus.
