Los Angeles RTD – A bus chaser’s dream!

February 16, 2014 at 11:10 am

The golden age of RTD bus chasing for me was the early 1980’s to the early 1990’s. Back before RTD changed to the Metro, with its 1970’s  sunburnt color scheme, the RTD bus era of Los Angeles was a time where seeing all of Los Angeles was affordable for a kid like me. I have started to track down old ads, toys and pictures from this time, so stay posted as I preview some of the things coming back for you to see from this era. enjoy.
