  1. Well apparently that won't be the case until years further down the line.
  2. I received an email as well for part time bus operating. If you follow the instructions of the email you'll know when to schedule you're interview and where it will be taking place.The Interview takes place at CTA HQ's on 567 W Lake St. As long as you scheduled a date for your interview everything else should be self-explanatory.
  3. #1305 has an odd story but I can't remember exactly how it ended up at south shops but it has been defunct since 2012 or 2013, It had heavy structural damage in the rear.
  4. #8343-#8349 have been dormant since the air & water show this past weekend. A number of factors could be a reason for that.
  5. #1305 isn't coming back, its already missing parts and other components. #1805 and #4167 may come back but only time will tell.
  6. No but that Metro B sitting next to it has been retired after the engine gave out a week or so ago.
  7. Well 74th trains there drivers mainly on Ashland Ave, rarely do I see them training outside of Ashland, 77th sort of trains everywhere from what i've seen sometimes 87th,Ashland and Western. Depending on the garage and the training routes approved from the higher brass determines where drivers get there training. So maybe Cermak is an approved area to train since it does have a little bit of every surface street you could imagine with numerous obstacles to get use to, such as transitions between two lane streets to four and even six lane avenues, you factor in traffic,parked cars,pedestrians,very tight turns if you're starting point is near McCormick Place, you pretty much get a little bit of everything traveling along cermak.
  8. If you did your research you would know why FG has never had Artics.
  9. I had a blast from the past moment seeing all the nostalgic and if not historic buses from the mid to late 90s, Seeing #6163 was the highlight of my day. I appreciate @CTA5750 for allowing me to get a brief ride and taking photos throughout the morning, just an incredible sight to see all around.
  10. So you'll be around Garfield then from start to finish of the parade? I would love to see it. Haven't seen it since last August.
  11. Seeing route 24 making that transition is a good sign, I just hope the reconfiguration of that area between Cermak,Archer and Clark has better traffic signals put in place.
  12. So Kedzie has #1199 now, I wonder if they'll get some #1200's now.
