I've seen buses with two rear axles that have rear steer. Its strange. They don't turn like the front; instead the rear most axle moves sideways alittle during the turn. If turning left, it moves slightly to the right and vise versa.

I stand corrected. I didn't look at it closely. I remember growing up in Chicago in the 80's they had some articulated buses but the trailer was shorter and the axle did steer.
