  1. 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
  2. December 2018 Bus Changes

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

    The font probably
  4. 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
  5. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Is that why the red line is still running some Ashland trips?
  6. 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
  7. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Exactly. Just like King County metro's Ryerson base garage
  8. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Also if you do your research all TA's tend to stick older equipment at garages with light service requirements this isnt just a cta thing
  9. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    You're insulting your own intelligence. You say you were at FG since 1980 something and there's plenty of PROVEN examples of that go against your "NW side is ignored" facts. 74th had all 6000's as recent as 2006. Red line south was essentially built with crappy trackbed that didnt get addressed till 201e, blue line literally CANT take 5000's so debunk these PROVEN facts with your own credible proof or just give it up. Youre starting to just sound bitter. You can always get a one day and ride south or in Chicago garage territory if not being on a 7900 hurts that much
  10. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Someones gonna end up with old equipment either way it goes so stop acting singled out caue 74th was all 6000's pretty recently along with archer being all NOVA when it could've gotten some new flyers if you wanna go there. Also the fact that outside of Addison, Belmont, Lawerence, Milawaukee, everything else is pretty light an gentle on equipment. (Notice Kedzie has the oldest artics but makes sense for them to be there since the only use they really get is weekday rush. Notice west siders arent whining about that)
  11. Random CTA

    Even 18Th you still close to cermak. I feel like we can use the time and resource to put something more dire on the priority list especially for all the disruptions this will cause to make this happen
  12. Random CTA

    On 15th the service would not be that infrequent most of those routes funnelling onto the same streets in thst area. I'm not saying the development won't spur ridership I'm just saying it seems to be a lot in an area that's not exactly hurting for service
  13. Random CTA

    Would a station at 15th really be necessary considering Roosevelt station, routes 18, 24,29, 62, and the Michigan routes are so close? It's one thing to close a gap with an in fill but this seems a lot plus isn't an interlocking not too far away that would need to be moved?
  14. Random CTA

    I dont cause when 77th had the 6 they weren't in too much of a hurry to dump the 20 or so artics they had until 6 went to 103rd so it's more of a do we have a route that demands and can effectively use artics? If so that garage could pick up a few even if only 15-25 for that route just like even though 66 isn't good with artics, moving 134/143 to Chicago would end up with them having 30 or so to run those
  15. Random CTA

    I think C and 77th would take artics for express but not locals
  16. Soooo I've seen from a decent source that Blue Line is possibly getting 2 AM trips between Jeff Park and Racine using Pink Link equipment possibly next pick. Check rail schedules.
  17. Red & Purple Modernization Project (RPM)

    Lawerence-Bryn Mawr along with the Belmont flyover got the contract approved and is slated to start fall 2019
  18. Random CTA

    I don't see tge expresses going to C unless about 15-20 artics come with
  19. Circle Line Revisited via Amazon

    I have no doubt what ever gets built around goose island can become a generator. Yes red and brown are smacked on weekday rush but if its a weekend they probably might be the main mode since mag mile or state is more of the destination. It's just would weekends support it considering it's pretty dead between LaSalle and halsted once all the business people are done for the day and on weekends. Unless a huge swath of west loop, west side residents suddenly got a need for direct connections between these areas for recreational use that I'm not aware of 😂😊
  20. Circle Line Revisited via Amazon

    I'm trying to picture demand or generators along the route that would make it non-redundant on weekends. Ogilvie to goose island seems like a shift work or 9-5 type of corridor, at least with the route im picturing in my head from reading this and the map shown. It basically starts near North/Clybourn and Armitage brown so if anything it would serve the same function as a LaSalle Express route (getting people to train stations and business/offices directly without going through the red line or a Michigan express)
  21. It's gonna be rolled out In bits between now and 2019(?). First phase folded 205 into 213, idk if 54A already got it's change or if it's part of a later phase
  22. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Nova is mandatory no? Like the Booth basically was made to be closed at all times unless you want the door swinging and smacking passengers lol. I think someone said the bus won't move if it's open but i think I remember someone driving with it unsecured. I just know that time you couldn't leave it locked open like a New Flyer, it swung unless he closed himself in
  23. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Wonder if running all 3200s off peak Is taxing on the power. You seen the latest slow zone maps? I lot of power slow zones popping up
  24. 3200-series - Rehabs

    I still think no part of the city is being favorited. People just worked up over trivial matters far as this is concerned, I just laid out that Red was never really a winner over blue as much as ppl convince themselves 🙄😂
  25. 3200-series - Rehabs

    Also taking dates into consideration you have: Blue- constant tie replacement on forest park from 2001-2012 O hare tie replacement -2007-2008 Blue line subway - 2009 Your new blue -2014 Red line - A more vibrant red (2004-2007) Subway track replacement (2008) Dan Ryan track- 2013 And RPM related work so if you want to compare blue and red they got work and repairs on a similar timeline only thing that's standing out with red line getting new cars is that considering fleet compatibility and the number of 5000s, someone was gonna have something to complain, logistically Howard became the better choice due to 3 lines sharing one yard
