  1. CTA buses to go all electric by 2040?

    As far as Seattle setting the bar on electric that's more due to them using a high number of trolleybus routes. They look like a regular artic except with the poles and wiring overhead so would that be a good comparison? The next batch ordered is for their upcoming BRT corridors on Madison, Roosevelt, 23rd ave which interestingly are what the Ashland BRT would have been.
  2. 2400-series - Service Dates

    When did 3200s start seeing weekend service? Are they in midday weekday service yet?
  3. Bus service expansions/extensions

    Guess plans to attach it to another route are down the drain. Wonder what and where its routing is gonna be extended without duplicating
  4. If I ran Transit for one day...

    Yeah the 100 is honestly one of those buses that would've qualified for decrowdig cuts if it were up to me. All the riders are on 93rd and that far east people will opt for the 14 or 28 if they are going downtown
  5. Garfield Gateway (Green Line)

    I think your point of 3 and 4 competing with the green is actually happening. A lot of people have been using the green to 63rd instead of the bus THEN switching. Trains have been fuller even with the frequency bump.
  6. 5000-series - Updates

    Shortage probably. Now if we see the maps swapped out then maybe a transfer
  7. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Allison. Before chicago got their share of that batch some were at 103rd but in service. Or maybe 1920's be you get my drift 🧐🧐
  8. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Somewhere in the forum people reported sightings of allison new flyers on 103rd routes when they were still new and being shuffled around so bushunter is HALF right, bur for him and CTA5750 to exaggerate on assignments just to prove a false point of northwest getting shafted is extreme and bogus. Like i stated earlier every transit agency has one garage or yard that is assigned older equipment (ryerson base in seattle is an example). FG as a garage that is mainly rush heavy but dead middays is reasonable to be the holding place for old equipment in Chicago's case. If you guys wanna ride a 7900 or 5000 that bad chicago garage routes arent THAT far. Lying or blatantly ignoring assignment histories and trying to tell other members who are watching these kinda things that things we've literally seen is starting to make you two look pretty childish
  9. December 2018 Bus Changes

    It's 2019 and people still doubt Andre? Lmao I honestly forgot at this point who said it but I honestly heard it so much I thought some proof was out already
  10. December 2018 Bus Changes

    I thought 54B was getting the electric
  11. A 2006 D40LF with A different Sign

    The font probably
  12. Random CTA

    Its a result of the decrowding plan freeing up runs to where a few artics can handle Kelly, Kennedy and another high school before serving their share of work on lake shore routes. K handed over primary service to 74th after not doing too much work south of 39th
  13. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Is that why the red line is still running some Ashland trips?
  14. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    Sounds a bit old cause now those PM rush artics come on at 3-4 which were formerly used for 135/136 although some 147s still interline as well
  15. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Exactly. Just like King County metro's Ryerson base garage
