  2. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Was killing time before picking my wife up but went back over to FG & shot a video VID_20190419_220643911.mp4
  3. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Aw ok didn't know that part
  4. CTA Bus Rapid Transit (take two)

    So Western & Chicago are the only ones getting lanes. The way that map looks, 79th is only getting TSP. Makes sense why they can't do bus lanes, the section that needs it the most is least likely to get it if it means losing parking
  5. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Those WB are always at FG i think those work buses are delivering workers from SS to pick up 6400’s that they are going to retire
  6. Random CTA

    1632 is out of service someone just knocked out a window on it at kimball/sunnyside
  7. Yesterday
  8. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Was near FG today & went straight back the the 3rd yard seen 2 work buses I see all the buses that they retired they already took em to 7
  9. CTA Bus Rapid Transit (take two)

    Some short stretches of bus lanes coming to Western, Chicago, and 79th: https://chi.streetsblog.org/2019/04/19/city-announces-new-bus-speed-initiative-but-will-drivers-respect-the-new-lanes/
  10. More Bus Moves

    Probably frees up some 1000-Series and 7900-Series buses at FG to run Addison along with the 4000-Series and 4300 and 4333-Series assigned there from NP.
  11. CTA ridership lost to ride share

    I don't think anyone at the CTA has the foggiest idea that people are abandoning it not just because the ride sharing trips are faster, but because the CTA has become so horrendously uncomfortable! The sideways seats are disasters. They're too narrow & leave large gaps at the end of each section, because they should've bought wider seats, but didn't because some fool wanted to keep the inventory simpler. One day I took the L home from the Loop to Loyola & had to get up & stand halfway there, because some rude, huge guy squeezed his body into the half seat between me & another person. It was painful! If the artics on the Lake Shore Drive routes have springs & shock absorbers, it's news to me! The northern part of the 147 on Sheridan Road can knock out tooth fillings! I grew up riding buses that ran out of the old Diversey/Keeler garage & they had the softest ride of any buses, ever. Plus I love your signature line from "Yes, Prime Minister.

  15. Spring 2019 Rail Pick April 28th

    Ashland/63rd Red Line Rush Period Trips Discontinued Red Line Impact: Service Change Monday, April 29, 2019 to TBD Full Description: How does this affect my trip? Red Line service between Howard and Ashland/63rd will no longer operate during the morning or evening rush periods. Red Line service will run between Howard and 95th at all times. Why is service being changed? The Howard-Ashland/63rd Red Line trips are being discontinued due to the substantial completion of construction for the 95th Street Terminal Improvement Project.
  16. Pace Heritage Fleet

    I only seen photos of 2764 wrapped so far, maybe we should start finding other buses that are wrapped.
  17. CTA ridership lost to ride share

    Well, here’s the answer. We’ve called it (or at I have since being in the profession): https://jalopnik.com/uber-finally-admits-its-directly-competing-with-publi-1834009027
  18. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Didn't see the sticker thought it one one that was sent to 3 but another person corrected me I was driving too fast by time I looked in the mirror I was a distance away from it
  19. Pace Heritage Fleet

    Two “unique” buses: 2764 and 2766 at the temporary stop location on Washington Street:
  20. Pace Heritage Fleet

    Looks great! I'm expecting something exactly like that but dark green instead of the Blue.
  21. Last week
  22. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    It’s 3 now but did it have a 7 or C sticker on it
  23. Pace Heritage Fleet

    I agree, its embarrassingly bad. Instead of trying to make a modern bus look vintage, they should have adapted these liveries to fit on a modern bus. If this is the route they are taking, I'm not looking forward to the others... Here is a rendering of a West Towns ElDorado that I made during my free time. (I based it off 776) Its a very simple livery, I'm curious to see how Pace will botch it.
  24. Found my Ventra Card last night, nice to see it after thinking I lost it for 4 weeks. Next time the Ventra Card won't go in the closet.
