A few additional buses were built before 1923, and are not listed.

Beginning in 1935, transit buses were consecutively numbered, a numbering system which continues today with the Milwaukee County Transit System.

Certain buses were painted for the "Green Bus" routes.

Certain buses were assigned to Racine or to interurban service, and are included for continuity of the numbering system. In addition, the series 600-649 was used for interurban buses acquired between 1924 and 1941.
