    You asked this before, and you still haven't given a reason why it should. FG is losing 205 to begin with.
  9. RTA Governance

    Tribune says Illinois already has laws in place, and start paying Oct. 1.
  10. ATS O'Hare

    As depicted on the ENC site, and exemplified by the new Schaumburg Trolleys, the EZ Riders now have the same front and back as the Axess.

    1000-1025 1028-1033 are at forest glen 1400-1409 are at North Park 1034-1193 are at 103rd
  12. RTA Governance

    RTA (and the rest of the sales tax collecting entities, such as Toni Preckwinkle) just got another windfall/what they thought was due. The Supreme Court just overruled the cases that said that Internet merchants were not required to collect use taxes if they don't have a physical presence in the state (Forbes). Like the Hartney Fuel Oil case, I bet this stops a lot of bellyaching by the budgeting government units for at least the next two minutes. Of course, the Quill case didn't mean much to us with respect to Quill, which has a physical presence on Pace 626.

    Still no 1000 series New Flyer buses between #1000-1429 at Kedzie again?
  14. New Eldorados?

    It did at one time, but not recently.
  15. New Eldorados?

    I believe the 350 interline with the much longer 364.

    As part of the North Shore changes, will the 206 move garages from FG to NP?

    6651 was repaired and returned to service. It, along with 6612, may be the last two 6600s left. By the way, W got all of the 6730s (6730-6739, 10 buses) over the weekend. The 6740s are still at N.

    I stand corrected. FG also has 1000-1025, 1028-1033, 1552-1560, 1590-1593, 1595, 1596, 1746, 1753-1761 and 1763 in addition to 1799. So the list of 1000s for the week of 6/17/18 should be this: 103rd: 1034-1194 C: 1368, 1369, 1371, 1372, 1374-1386, 1800-1820, 1822-1838, 1933-2029 74th: 1026, 1027, 1366, 1367, 1410-1551 77th: 1195-1304, 1306-1365, 1370, 1373, 1387 FG: 1000-1025, 1028-1033, 1552-1560, 1590-1593, 1595, 1596, 1746, 1753-1761, 1763, 1799 K: 1561-1589, 1594, 1597-1704, 1709, 1712, 1714-1717, 1721, 1722, 1725-1729, 1731-1741, 1743, 1747, 1748, 1750-1752, 1839-1846, 1849-1854 NP: 1388-1409, 1705-1708, 1710, 1711, 1713, 1718-1720, 1723, 1724, 1730, 1742, 1744, 1745, 1749, 1762, 1764-1798, 1847, 1848, 1855-1932

    Looks like Coninental Air Transport (airport Express) is helping out at ORD. They are using MDW parking lot shuttle buses at ORD . They are 30 ft Eldorados. I guess they are EZ Riders though they look like the Axxess in the front. They also have rear doors. There are 2 of them operating along with CTA artics 4331, 4359, 4376, and 4365.
  22. ATS O'Hare

    CTA buses 4329, 4350. 1763 are lined up on the lower level of ORD Terminal 5 along wi t.f h a parking lot shuttle bus. Earlier I spotted 178 on upper level Termial 1. CTA 1761 is behind another parking shuttle at Temial 5. O suppose CTA s supplementing the All Terminals shuttle..

    Just my thoughts. I think it's a fair assessment based on my opinion.
  24. Pace Bus Accidents

    I assume you have gone down to Pace Heritage Division with a mechanic and surveyed the vehicle in question.
  25. Pace Bus Moves

    Well it depends on whether they want to rebuild the front end. With it being next on the retirement list after the 6262s where will it be on the reliability scale in 2 years and then it's not a full size bus which makes it somewhat easier to write off. So I think it has more against it then for it.
  26. The Breakdown Thread

    #1874 broke down on #152 EB @ Addison and Elston. Apparent loss of air pressure in the braking system or an air ride suspension went out. Bus was driven by techs north on Kedzie after they did some high idling on the bus with accelerator held down.
  27. Pace Bus Accidents

    What kind bus was in accident
  28. Pace Bus Moves

    Not necessarily .I remember riding a bus that slid on a patch of black ice and took out a light pole. It was out of service for months. Fast forward 2 years and it only was it running in regular service, I actually drove it regularly. The gear shift was on the floor to the right of the driver. The best way to put the bus in neutral was to just kick it out of gear, as neutral and reverse were very hard shift back intuitive. I dont know if the aforementioned accident had something to do with it .
