Want to buy the quintessential city bus, the GM New Look, popularly known as the Fishbowl? Step back to 1963 to read a pastel-hued brochure.
Amazing fact: These buses, without wheelchair lifts or air conditioning, are still used on some routes in Toronto, where the author of the linked post, transit activist/blogger Steve Munro, lives. In a mix of eras, Toronto Fishbowls can be found alongside brand-new accessible hybrid buses.
