  1. New Express Routes Coming Soon.

    Was the ridership for the 54A high enough that the new Route C is justified, or is this an experimental service?
  2. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    While this route is before my time, I've always thought that East 83rd street could use bus service again. The Wal-Mart and 87th Red Line would be decent passenger attractors and it could run from the Wal-Mart that is currently served by the 24 to 83rd/Lakefront.
  3. MARC Kawasaki multi-level cars

    I can confirm that 7802 has made it back, I haven't seen the rest. Based on some pictures from the r/TrainPorn reddit, they were in Denver & Pueblo. Still wondering when we're going to get our set of low-levels back from SEPTA
  4. FTA rips DC Metro's track maintenance

    You think its bad from the news, but as someone who lives here, this stack upon stack of problems really wears down on life. I remember when the Red Line had to do abrupt single tracking and station skipping and I was forced to walk 30 mins to my destination from Union Station. I can never recall seeing waiting times of 26, 28 & 32 for trains in Chicago, from when I lived there to my visits, not even on a Sunday
  5. If I ran Transit for one day...

    Any specific corridors?
  6. If I ran Transit for one day...

    Oh, I vaguely remember that? Why didn't that work? Also, what are some of the shuttles?
  7. If I ran Transit for one day...

    Hey-o! I've been gone some time and I come back to see one of my favorite threads active. Thusly, I decided to contribute something! 1: Redo of the L train (new stations mostly, Orange/Brown combo) https://drive.google.com/open?id=11V_8XpPUz0LGw67Dd81JLPQgQOg 2: Creation of a "Link" system (CDOT & CTA) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WSScFDVNFW5f3sOisXBxkAxQDZc&usp=sharing
  8. Spring Pick 2016

    I come after a near year to some good news apparently! Any more news of 11 extension and/or a 31st street route?
  9. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    #8146 out on #57
  10. 700-series XE40 - Deliveries & Assignments

    None of which are new sightings, barring the fact that the XE's haven't been out in about 5-6 days. Anything new?
  11. More Bus Moves

    I used the Maths22 tracker, so that was probably a recent appearance.
  12. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    What does happen at West Shops?
  13. More Bus Moves

    Was #6797 already at FG? If not, its on #77 now
  14. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    IIRC, Busjack said the novas actually seat less than a NF, which might be a reason to send those [NF] to #4 or #79. But then I look at the 5000's and the stimulus artics and realize that CTA has shown increasing interest in packing more people on buses in the form of more standing passengers due to aisle-facing seating than there actually being more seats for people to sit down (which, IMO, is less of a safety hazard in the event of a crash) Note: At the time I'm typing this, there are 6 nova's on the #4, but still nowhere near the amount of NF's
  15. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    #8136 is on service on 53
