Electric Railways Adopt Motor Buses on a Big Scale
Many electric railways throughout the country are employing large numbers of big buses on their feeder lines. The Pacific Electric Railway is one of the largest of its kind in America, and has taken a prominent part in leading the way in adopting motor buses on its feeder lines. This photo shows the type of bus used (a 1923 White) in comparison with the 400 class wood interurban trolley car used on the same line.
The destination sign on the bus reads Garfield & Marengo Avenue Belt Line which was in the Northern Division in Pasadena and South Pasadena.
