  1. This shouldn't be the case. I will look into this.
  2. (Moved to General Transit Discussion since it seems more appropriate for this topic.)
  3. Annual CTA Holiday Train

    It's all part of the plan to reduce crowding. Children will see that thing and run away crying.
  4. More Bus Moves

    Busjack is correct. Linking is fine. Re-uploading here is not unless the photo is licensed to allow that.
  5. Up to 45 Electric Buses

    Can I get it on 100 3.5-inch floppies instead?
  6. Random CTA

    Link fixed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TJ8k13tEko
  7. CTA Bus Rapid Transit (take two)

    Prepaid boarding pilot coming to Madison/Dearborn.
  8. Hiring Process

    Note: The "Possible new employee" topic has been merged with "Hiring Process."
  9. 2016 South Side Service Changes

    Transit App is showing the 31 and 95 as expected, so it depends on the app. Buses are tracked internally when they go off-route, but Bus Tracker and the public API will not show buses in that state.
  10. The "Source" button allows edits to the underlying code, but traditional BBCode has generally been phased out by the software vendor. It's not something I have direct control over.
  11. Some details from Tesla's updated master plan released yesterday: In addition to consumer vehicles, there are two other types of electric vehicle needed: heavy-duty trucks and high passenger-density urban transport. Both are in the early stages of development at Tesla and should be ready for unveiling next year. We believe the Tesla Semi will deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport, while increasing safety and making it really fun to operate. With the advent of autonomy, it will probably make sense to shrink the size of buses and transition the role of bus driver to that of fleet manager. Traffic congestion would improve due to increased passenger areal density by eliminating the center aisle and putting seats where there are currently entryways, and matching acceleration and braking to other vehicles, thus avoiding the inertial impedance to smooth traffic flow of traditional heavy buses. It would also take people all the way to their destination. Fixed summon buttons at existing bus stops would serve those who don't have a phone. Design accommodates wheelchairs, strollers and bikes.
