 Wraps on new buses.....meh.  Shame PACE isn't running any ACTUAL historical buses 

 

Don't they have a few Orion 1's at south shops ?? and Fishbowl Nortran 460 ???

 

Would be cool to see those old dogs running around B|

Traveled out to Joliet today to get a photo of their Heritage wrap. Here it is. I guess it looks alright. I wish they had put the red around the front like the original.

The McHenry one will be hard to find and get a decent picture of. I assume the wrap will be on one of the 30' buses rather than a paratransit.

Honestly, the wrap looks terrible. Although I not sure it would've been any better if it was painted. Aside from the lack of red in front, the decision to maintain the size of the windows throws the rest of the wrap off

Looking forward to  Pace South, SW, West  and NW wraps.  Sad that the RTA wrap is way out in No Man's Land!

I agree, its embarrassingly bad. Instead of trying to make a modern bus look vintage, they should have adapted these liveries to fit on a modern bus. If this is the route they are taking, I'm not looking forward to the others...

 

Here is a rendering of a West Towns ElDorado that I made during my free time. (I based it off 776) Its a very simple livery, I'm curious to see how Pace will botch it.
