New York City MTA General Motors RTS model transit bus # 8662. New York City USA. From the internet.

I spotted this photograph on the internet a few years ago.

Until recent times, the General Motors Corp RTS model transit bus, rolled many miles down city streets in many towns and cities in North America, serving transit ridership on a daily basis.

Introduced in the late 1970's, these futuristic looking buses were intended as a replacement model for the aging GM TDH Series fishbowl windshield buses introduced in 1959. Many of these were in operation until the early to late 2000's, until replaced by newer models of transit buses.
