    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.

    Traveled out to Joliet today to get a photo of their Heritage wrap. Here it is. I guess it looks alright. I wish they had put the red around the front like the original.

    I almost want to say “this is why we need an elected board, but that may not any better either.”

    I wouldn't imagine that's changing soon until the blue line gets the infrastructure to handle more modern fleets.

    I feel like it would make more sense for the 85 to stop on the street and let any of those 4 routes on the street have the bay

    8-Car 3200’s on the red line between Roosevelt and 95th as a training train? Very cool

    That board meeting was hilarious, Those "Pencil pushers" on the board really have NO clue about their operations/Fleet. Only care about a nice, safe position on a transit board $$$ and pension I'm surprised none of them recommend ordering buses from Orion or Flxible lol

    "Do we trade them in or something?" "Why, yes, we do. Not only that, but New Flyer is offering $1,500 cash back, zero percent financing for twelve years, and a beer cooler!"

    The specification was for clean diesel buses, and Pace said they would not consider battery-electrics. Proterra wouldn’t have bid anyway, as they only make 35’ and 40’ models. (I sound like @Busjack now. I miss having him on here.)
