This private Industrial storage lot in Northwest Suburban "Berkeley Illinois", was one of the original locations for a group of bus collectors, known as "The Midwest Transit Bus Museum".
After a few moves, the group moved it's collection to the town of "Crest Hill" Illinois in the Joliet area on another rental storage lot. The retired RTA bus seen here, is a 1967 GMC transit coach originally from the "West Towns Bus Company". During the 1970's, the succesor company RTA painted it into this unique Tiger Stripe scheme with markings promoting Chicago's Brookfield Zoo. This bus is nicknamed the "Tiger Bus" by the group members. Sitting behind the cyclone chain link fence, the bus itself looks very much like a Brookfield Zoo exhibit.
