  1. Exactly. What 5750 is refusing to acknowledge is the fact that while FG has their fair share of busy routes, outside of Milwaukee their service being dedicated towards north and northwest service means they put less wear and tear per mile compared to the other garages that all do downtown service which means more costly deadheads especially for routes with peak heavy demand and end up pushing up and down the Kennedy, Dan Ryan and Lake shore constantly. Therefore the current fleet allotments make sense. Same thing for the artic assignments. Kedzie has mainly peak only demand for artics outside of 151 and 12 on weekends and therefore have the oldest artics
  2. Which as a well.taken care of and reliable model is better than the former arrangement
  3. Or you can move somewhere that has them since you're that pressed about it. You're the only one left on here still pushing the issue 🤧
  4. Exactly that's why I said the most he can get is advanced alerts at pick time.
  5. Gotta look in the alerts when pick time comes.

    The overlap is justified by making the connection to rail. If anything they can do like 71 and N5 for the red line and just run those buses express to the green line

    It would have to be a kedzie run on 72 for what you're saying to have any weight. It's just a loan

    There was no Dan Ryan project to wait on for 1. 2: the reason theyre waiting on the Eisenhower is due to the fact that the layout of the expressway might change which means the movement of tracks so considering the track layout might be changed, might as well wait to minimize issues

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

    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

    Ashland Nova's are for TSP
  14. I wouldn't imagine that's changing soon until the blue line gets the infrastructure to handle more modern fleets.
  15. 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
  16. The artic shortage was so severe CTA had to say "whatever is ready we'll take it"
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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?
