    Wow 103rds really been borrowing a lot of NOVAs these last few weeks

    Possibly BUT one of the big things to remember, NOTHING is a true indication of where a bus or what gets assigned where. Especially stickers which have been known to be left on a bus for 2-3 whole picks at a time before the correct one is replaced. Theres many more things that play into a bus trade besides summer or winter drawing demand to a certain area. Sometimes garages trade to even wear and tear since some operate heavier loads than others that kind of thing.
  4. June 19 run pick

    From what maths22 is telling me, SN runs are basically midday storage 66 and I think an odd 65 trip, SR or Randolph are buses stored midday for 77Th runs on the 2, 3, 4; 103rd trips on 14, 26 and SH or Hickory (North Branch) is for midday storage on the 8.
  5. June 19 run pick

    Nah they just leave a trail 8-9 buses at Navy Pier terminal itself along the path leading into it. SR- equals stored underground on middle randolph SN- run filled by a bus left at navy pier between rush SH- stored at hickory between rush SS - run is filled by a bus that either is to go to south shops after it's trips or just came from.

    But since you can't try not to nitpick the guy who's doing all the work 🙄🙄

    Seems you should offer to help if a bus or two off bugs you that much or seek the actual roster from cta themselves 🤧🤧🤧
  8. More Bus Moves

    Saw 8190 on J14. Run number 5825 though so does that mean they were short and the quickest option was to pull a driver from the 20 or so to go fill the run?

    Gotta balance the wear and tear at some point especially as far as the flyers are concerned. With 1000+ buses having been delivered over the course of 2-3 years some of them had quite a few miles on them before their later members even hit the street.
  10. Return of Route 145

    I think some part of the code gets missed when cleaning them out because I still see a few 14 Jeffery Express signs here and there along with an occasional X4 or X3 here and there. If it was the famous 145 EXPRESS to Grace/Lake Shore it could be a 145 code for that run left where the 146 short turns which some interline with 148 just like the old 145/148 interline. Makes me wonder if some 148s come with a ravenswood sign slipping through here and there
  11. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Yeah cta tries to get all garages to a point where on weekends they stock up enough to where on weekends where here is a light enough service level on they can keep 6400s for when they really need them.
  12. Probably cause he has other things outside of this forum. You could see about becoming a moderator for this if it bugs you that much
  13. Pace Bus Moves

    You spelled "29 State" drivers wrong.... You ever seen what happens once state becomes more open? 😂😂
  14. More Bus Moves

    Idk cause every bus i saw on 130 was a 74th bus with 6??? as run numbers.
  15. More Bus Moves

    Welp as far as artic rehabs with a spare ratio of 45% I doubt rehabs will highly impact how many are left on the road. 103rd/ kedzie both have 83 and probably put out around 60 for their peaks, NP keeps 130-140 while about 90 go out for the peak
