  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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)
  7. 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) 🤔🤔
  8. How would you implement a CRP

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

    Depends on does this involve the system now or the system before the decrowding?
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Spring 2019 Rail Pick April 28th

    Something doesn't seem right. 10 night cars get consolidated into just 4-5???
  13. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

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

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

    Yes. Eberhart to Vernon is a half or 75th st to 75th Pl
  16. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    I've seen it a few times. Somewhere by the goldblatt building or whatever its called on 59th
  17. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    E/W routes stop every block. Remember east to west every street is a half block. 79th started the "every 3rd bus stops at wentworth" when artics were introduced
  18. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    These 192's are scheduled interlines with J14 and yes the 192 does in fact layover unless youre saying my eyes have lied to me 10+ times
  19. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    Every bus lays over even interlined deadheads
  20. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    Where ever the 192 does 🤷🤷
  21. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    There was always an overlap replacing it. 27 S Deering replaced the 83rd segment after being rerouted onto south shore, 15 Jeffrey Local resulted in covering the 51st- 63rd/Stony segment along with 6 replacing 27 local service. The 35th cut back is a result of decrowding and being seen as redundant south of 35th
  22. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    I mean from all the way out south a one seat ride to downtown is pretty lengthy unless they reinstated X service. The east 63rd branch is pretty underutilized as is; but in a hypothetical alternative to the south LSD restructuring(and various tweaks in between) , the advantage of stopping at streets that the red line doesn't can be played apon (thus possibly bumping ridership on those connecting buses) by cutting frequency on 3 and 4, creating an X3A South King Drive express (115th to Garfield Green M-F, local weekends) giving far south siders an interim alternative to red line along with job access to the Fulton district along Lake (lack of job access is an issue in Roseland and while a red line extension will help solve that, access to west lake will hopefully provide even more job opportunity). A new 4A South cottage Grove (115th to U of C Hospitals, M-F replacing and feeding service south of 63rd into the more frequent Green Line) will also be created to help keep frequent connections to the green line along with a boost in frequency to the Green line (every 10 min from the branches in the peak and 15 in the off peak). The cost savings of not having buses get "lost"/delayed on lengthy trips downtown can be reinvested into more frequent service that's needed else where. 27 S Deering would have retained its connection to the Green which saves time on route by shortening length but still providing a connection to a fairly frequent line, 6 would be 63rd and Stony to Wacker/Columbus since 27 remained (which results in more reliable 6 service considering the stretch south of 63rd is what helps kill schedule adherance for the route). Boom now we killed a bunch of bird with one stone, made a bit more use out of the Green Line (the resulting 5 min rush frequency might even help eliminate the already useless 1 Bronzeville/Union Station.
  23. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    I'd rather use the green line and split routes 3/4 into a 3a/4a south king drive/cottage grove ala the orange line restructuring

    Hey only thing keeping this argument going are the NW-siders in denial 🙅🙅
  25. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Damn 29 pulls more weight than J14?? I thought it would be lower on the totem pole
