During the 1960's, MCTS predecessor Milwaukee & Suburban Transport Corporation acquired these General Motors "New Look" buses. And after rebuilding, many of these "fishbowls" continued running into the 21st Century. #2007 is shown westbound near 5th Street, on the #54 Mitchell route.
Meanwhile in 1997, many of Milwaukee's General Motors RTS buses, built in 1980, had been retired. These buses were spotted in a lot in Kenosha in 1997.
These Crown-Ikarus 60 foot articulated buses were acquired in 1985. #3429 is seen westbound on Wisconsin Ave. at 4th St. on the special route to County Stadium, for a Brewers baseball game.
Many of the Crown-Ikarus 60 foot articulated buses were retired in 2000. These buses were seen at the Fond Du Lac Station. Also seen to the right is a retired General Motors RTS bus.
Neoplan supplied most of Milwaukee's buses built in the 1980's. #3508 is seen westbound on Wisconsin Ave. at 4th St. The last such buses were retired in 2002.
Orion bus #3815 has a modified "MetroLink" paint scheme, with an orange stripe. This was one of Milwaukee's first lift equipped buses, after an earlier unsuccessful attempt at using wheelchair lifts. Bus is seen westbound on Wisconsin Ave. at 4th St., on the #1 "Metrolink" Northwest Express route.
Milwaukee County Transit System eventually repainted some of its older buses into the new paint scheme. Orion bus #3721 is seen eastbound on Wisconsin Ave. at 4th St., on the #12 12th-Wisconsin route.
