Profile Information

  • Interests
    As a transit enthusiast since I was 6, I always wanted to pursue my interests by being part of the Cta whether being a rail operator or bus driver. It's not easy though but it's worth a challenge.

  1. Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

    The only time you have to requalify as a motorman is when you're out of service for over 1-3 months. Now I don't know what's going to happen when the 7000s arrive but I'm not getting any help with any information from the rail supervisors, managers, and instructers.
  2. Detailed 3200s Rehab Progress

    That is incorrect. You have to learn all railcar series in motor school.

  7. CTA ridership lost to ride share

    Are you asking how long it takes for Lyft to pick up a passenger?
  8. 4 car Yellow Line train

    It's called a door cut out. You have to use the MUDC (Multiple Unit Door Control) key to lock the doors from the inside that are not berthed on the platform. This is standard for troubleshooting defective doors.

    Forgot to mention that I was officially qualified two days after Christmas. Sorry for the late post but I’ve been busy mostly working overnights. I’m officially working on the Forest Park Branch via the extra board until the universal system pick (around late March to early April).
