ATU Local 689: No Service 1974
This set contains images of a Metrobus in 1974 that shows the block number as “689” with a “Local” sign in front of it to represent Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689, the union to which most Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority employees belong.

The route number sign is set “NO " and the destination sign set "Not In Service.” The original photos were staged and the shots taken in May 1974 at the Western Bus Garage at Wisconsin and Ingomar Streets NW. The garage is still in operation today.

This set of images was scanned from original negatives. Non-commerical use of this set of images should be credited to Patrick McCann. Commercial use of these items is prohibited without express permission.
