Students Boarding at Chicago Voc. (1967)
A CTA #87 87th to 87th & Western picks up students at the Chicago Vocational High School (Now Chicago Vocational Career Academy) in 1967. Bus #207 is a "New Look" style bus built by GM in 1961. This series, and another built by Flxible at the same time, were the first orders of "New Look" buses for CTA. Eventually, CTA's fleet was all "New "Look" and these bus dominated CTA's fleet and were the image of CTA from the 1960s into the 1980s.
