  1. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    4000 is the one that might have the malfunctioning tracker, as @mel bernero said it was actually 1594. I'm not sure myself, since for the past week, 4000 hasn't been in service except on the 52 and 1594 hasn't been in service at all. As for the 50, if you're looking at the tracker and the 19 is in service, that means an artic or two will be on the 50, since it runs next to the United Center

    8011 is on the 72, I haven't seen that bus off the 20 in a while
  3. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    I meant it as the schools showing up as a landmark on the timetable, but this helps as well, thank you
  4. News: Metra to explore buying 200+ cars

    If they could just get rid of the whole "gallery" aspect, that'd be great. I love sitting on the top level of cars, but not Metra's. Outlets are also a must, part of the reason I love taking the ME.
  5. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    Strange that they don't denote that on the schedule like they usually would for other routes that pass by high schools. Olive Harvey by itself warrants artics? Also, did 4091 come from the 28 onto the 106 or the other way around?
  6. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    4308 on the 106 and 4091, 4105 & 4116 on the 28. Never seen so many artics at once on that route. 4000 also hasn't shown back up on the tracker & neither has 1594. Maybe in for maintenance to fix whatever issue was going on between them?

    Stations are currently getting renewed, I can't recall what's going on with the tracks
  8. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    Reminds me of the Galaxy D60 I saw in New York last February, god that was a relic
  9. Random CTA

    Didn't someone try to rob a 6, or something on Lake Park a while back in a getaway attempt?
  10. News: Metra to explore buying 200+ cars

    How was the design modified?
  11. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    That's why they were in asterisks, for lack of direct connections, only perceived ones. That 8A one is especially wack, imo, it's too far to be a connection, but maybe that's childhood me speaking
  12. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    Huh, I never actually noticed this. The 8A*, 26, 28*, 171 & 172 are also exceptions. In terms of routes cancelled over the last few years, I can only think of the 49A as another exception.
  13. CTA Bus Garage Rosters

    Legal settlement?
  14. Up to 45 Electric Buses

    That's fair, I didn't think of that I mean, the 29, 65 & 66 is no slouch. The 2 runs on the expressway, and state/lafayette south of 69th has terrible road conditions unless it's been repaved since I've last been over there, so that would be a good test of wear & tear
  15. Up to 45 Electric Buses

    That's why all the conflicting statements about where chargers and stuff was going to go was confused. Put it at Navy Pier and you can really only run the 124, maybe the 2. Same thing with the 63. When I first heard about Proterras with chargers, my thought was 95th, especially b/c of the new terminal or Midway, where you have plenty of short-haul routes that the buses can be used on interchangeably.
