  1. Random CTA

    Might just be training new hires since that's Chicago's second function. They lost them cause 66 couldn't use them efficiently
  2. More Bus Moves

    Ashland is all Nova because X9 and X49 are supposed to be TSP BUT since Nova's came with tsp, Ashland was prioritized in implementing the system on that route since 74th only has enough Nova's for one or the other while Flyers get retrofitted with the tech so both routes can use it
  3. More Bus Moves

    Must be tsp equipped
  4. More Bus Moves

    Ashland Nova's are for TSP
  5. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    That would be Chicago if it's on the #20
  6. Spring 2019 Rail Pick April 28th

    I wouldn't imagine that's changing soon until the blue line gets the infrastructure to handle more modern fleets.
  7. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    I don't think series made a difference cause 77th started with all 4300s and Chicago had half their artics made up of 4300 before they were sent north
  8. 4000-series DE60LF - Updates - Rehabs

    The artic shortage was so severe CTA had to say "whatever is ready we'll take it"
  9. March 2019 Bus Changes

    A good while. Mainly in rush hour for the NB but the SB trips that start at Devon have slowly been expanding into the midday
  10. March 2019 Bus Changes

    Looks like the main crowds are between Randolph and Devon cause the same has been happening on the north end. The trips starting at Devon were usually rush only now they go till nearly midday
  11. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    Oh no school trips are usually marked as "leaves such and such at this time". I think 35 is also the same way. CMA has a bus wait outside that goes to the orange line then goes downtown to do a 143 but isn't on the map
  12. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    With a route as short as 106 the artic just does a schdueled run so its not noted as a special school run like 34 or 95
  13. Your New Blue - O'Hare Branch Rehab

    Yeah basically forest park is scheduled to coordinate with IDOT who plans on redoing the right of way of I-290 itself which may involve blue line change a bit of its footprint in the area as well so they don't want each other's projects to bump heads
  14. March 2019 Bus Changes

    Taking things a step further it looks like what's actually happening is 62 is covering when 62H doesn't run, after which it cuts back to pulaski to let 62H supplement as quoted in the post above. Early mornings and later in the evenings on Saturday you still have some Cicero runs(unless they forgot to add C for pulaski to those). Also what's with the random run starting at Pershing?
  15. Random CTA

    Aw naw this is just harder to update than it looks plus I think the dudes that do them are like owners of stores on top of that
  16. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    Idk as far as support for 103rd its far from needed and a kedzie short turn might as well go the full length. Now that could all change with the extension where 103/106 are most likely going to be recombined (minus the 106th street tail this time around)
  17. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    How about 27? Fits CTA's numbering scheme AND reduces any chance of confusion with stony island service (28A would probably give the impression that its a south stony island bus) 🤔🤔
  18. How would you implement a CRP

    Well crap part of my CRP was hypothetical 😭😭
  19. How would you implement a CRP

    Depends on does this involve the system now or the system before the decrowding?
  20. Random CTA

    They'll get to them when they get to them. Rushing people on these rosters that they don't have to do in the first place is VERY disrespectful as noted numerous times in this forum. We have maths22 and bustracker for you to update and contribute if you're really that pressed about it otherwise please stop with this crap guys
  21. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    Alderman pressure regarding 55A/N being postponed. Favoritism on keeping those routes and others out of midway are wasting service hours that could've been reused somewhere else. At one time midway feeders were to be replaced with something so CTA could better use those hours somewhere else
  22. Spring 2019 Rail Pick April 28th

    Something doesn't seem right. 10 night cars get consolidated into just 4-5???
  23. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I think its been seen at SS and not since but I could be wrong.
  24. Random CTA

    Uhhhhh yeah the whole south will be on your @$$ 😭😭
  25. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    Yes. Eberhart to Vernon is a half or 75th st to 75th Pl
