CTA ADVERTISING BUSES


In the 1980's, prior to the recent popularity of advertising buses on transit systems, Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry had five General Motors "fishbowls" repainted, either in red or blue. #9655 is seen southbound on State Street, in downtown Chicago, on the #62 Archer route.


A more contemporary Flxible "Metro" 6000 series bus promoting the Museum of Science and Industry, seen at its namesake museum on the #10 Museum route. Particularly noticeable is advertising for the "Pioneer Zephyr" train, on display at the museum. The #10 is a dedicated route operating between downtown and the museum during weekends and summers.
