The above photo was taken at the Cincinnati Greyhound terminal at Fifth & Sycamore Streets. The time period would be around 1972-1973. The terminal itself was destroyed by the wrecker's ball around 1977.  The bus on the left is a GM TDM5106 which originally was delivered to one of the Red & Tan companies in New Jersey. At the time of the picture, it was operating for Croswell Bus Line as their number 40. They painted a light blue over the red part of the red and tan.  The bus on the right is running for Megacity Transit Lines, which was part of the St. John Transportation Company group out of Dayton, OH.  Thanks to Roy Manning for the information.
