It was a quick-built bus that seated only 11 people, and initially it had a roof, a minimum enclosure, and an in-car bench, and it was a car body that even short Japanese passengers at that time could not get on without bending their heads.There is no window glass on the side or rear, and it is poor like putting a hood in rainy weather, "I disassembled the wooden box of the packaging (when the chassis was sent to Japan) and used it as the material of the car body."

Bus operations were supposed to be reduced as the trams were restored, but the transportation capacity of trams was so tight that they were called "Tokyo's famous crowded trains" even before the earthquake, and Tokyo. Citizens hoped that the new means of transportation, bus transportation, would continue.Therefore, in Tokyo City, the Ford TT of Entaro Bus was used to install a full-scale bus body to improve livability, and measures such as increasing the number of new large buses were taken to make it a Toei bus in the early 21st century. It became the source of bus transportation.
