Service History

Following its order of 525 GM New Looks in 1972, the CTA purchased an additional 545 of the buses in 1973.

The buses were painted in the CTA’s two-tone green scheme, although some where eventually repainted in the CTA’s white, red, and blue paint scheme which was introduced in 1987.

While portions of the 7400-series were retired throughout 1990 and 1991, the entire series was not retired until 1996.
