Vintage RTD Commercial Captures Bus-Riding Glamour
Can you remember when the MTA was known as the RTD (Rapid Transit District)? If so, you may enjoy this vintage 1970's promo for the RTD's park and ride bus service, narrated by George Takei. (Is there nothing Mr. Sulu can't do?) And is that a very young Fran Drescher (as suggested in Youtube's comments) feeding our protagonist an apple? Wait, what exactly is the RTD trying to say? Taking the bus is the Original Sin? A smoggy downtown is our punishment? Now we're confused.
