  1. #4113 currently being used as a police transport, saw it turn left on 75th @ Jeffery. Escorted by two police cars. Didn’t know this type of arrangement existed. Police need to have their own transport for these situations
  2. #4090 is on the 79, allowing passengers to board thru the rear. Only a couple have done so so far, but everyone has tapped their Ventra card at the reader
  3. I’ve never been able to sit on the head inbound car or head outbound car on any UP train I’ve taken this summer BNSF, ME, MDN are all collecting fares
  4. Huh. Is that part of the reason why they haven’t been collecting tickets? I can’t lie, the UP lines have been a great alternative to the Green, Blue & Purple lines and it’s so easy to social distance as well. I just went out to Gurnee on Sunday via the UPN line since it was free and the place I was looking for was only located in Gurnee, Aurora and Michigan City, the latter two of which still required paid fare on the train to get to
  5. Everything looks better than the Eldos
  6. I don’t think that was me, but I’m a regular J14 rider and I’ve discovered I’ve pretty much only have good or bad drivers, no in between. Fortunately, it’s been 90% good but every so often I get those “skipped on 5 passengers” or “refuse to move around a car that obviously won’t move” drivers 🤷🏾‍♂️
  7. I mean, you would assume it’s based on distance, no?
  8. I had that last week at Washington & LaSalle
  9. 8224 broken down at Midway. I thought the tow truck was the fire department’s at first 😂 IMG_8194.MOV IMG_8198.MOV
  10. No, there’s a strip of pavement that’s been gouged out across all the lanes, on NB LSD, right before Walden Ave. People who haven’t wised up yet, including some drivers, hit that gouge at 50+ mph. Ensue momentary chaos
  11. Sitting in the rear of the artics is worse. I’ve been lifted out of my seat a couple times and I’m 250+ lbs 💀
  12. When I typed this, I didn’t understand just how far north Lake Superior was. If the bus was built in St Cloud, it was on the optimal routing (Kennedy Expy heading SB/EB). Even if the bus was built in Canada (I’m assuming Winnipeg) it’s actually still faster and easier to travel via America rather than try to head via Thunder Bay & Sault Ste. Marie
  13. Was on the UPNW today around Clybourn and saw a SB (EB?) York Region Transit XD60 bus. I wonder what it was doing this far south in America
  14. Yep, the left lane, but I think it’s in all the lanes unfortunately. If my nickname was the fool, I’d have to find a new garage 💀
  15. I also felt there had to be some sort of prior history for that to happen. At the very least he could’ve let people pay for him, certainly wouldn’t be the first time I’ve heard someone get on the bus and ask for a dollar. Like I said, I didn’t hear any yelling or whatnot, just that eff you getting off bus, but the passenger still got off the bus at first prompting. The entire bus was very irate, and the following bus driver was very peeved as well. That was probably the most crowded bus I’ve been on this summer outside of a bus with all FedEx employees. That pavement gouge on LSD northbound near soldier field was not a good time for all those standing passengers I bet.
