A former Seatle Washington M.A.N articulated bus working for Pace. Bridgeview Illinois USA. October 2002.

Chicago's suburban bus operator Pace had been experiencing a shortage of available operable buses in 2002, and temporarily bought 20 of these used M.A.N diesel articulated transit buses from the city of Seatle Washington USA.

Since that time, many new buses arrived at Pace and the Seatle Articulateds were retired. The Illinois Railway Museum located in the town of Union Illinois, recently acquired a simular Seatle Washington M.A.N Articulated. The bus they acquired is a M.A.N articulated electric trolley bus, and it is currently undergoing restoration.
