You know how I saw that brand new NYC transit bus back in 2015 driving randomly through northern Illinois? Well, it happened again...on the same darn road!!

No SR20 this time (dead phone) but I clearly read “Suffolk Transit” on the bus and the bus had the same exact livery as the below photo. It might have even been the same exact model of bus too.

Now this bus was dirty, had a teensy bit of rust on the wheels and had some soot on it, so it wasn’t brand new like the last one. And again, it had Arizona plates like the brand new bus back in 2015.

Alright, I can’t be the only one seeing this, why are these buses going through Chicago? And mind you, the highway it was traveling on started off as a state route going deep into the suburbs. If it were going cross country it wouldn’t be on said highway. It instead would be farther east on I-94, not IL-53.

Pardon me while I pull out my hair.

Update: Doing some more research, these buses are built in Minnesota. That explains the new MTA bus. Maybe the Suffolk bus needed extensive repair or something? Still, why was it taking the worst route to get through Chicago? And why the Arizona plates???
