This 1967 GMC bus originally worked for the West Towns Bus Company in Chicago's western suburbs. After the 1974 creation of RTA...This bus was "Hand painted" into the unique color scheme shown here to honor the Chicago Brookfield Zoo. This bus ran in service until the mid 1980's, and is now privately owned and occasionally operated at the Midwest Transit Bus Museum in Cresthill Illinois near the city of Joliet.
