  1. Which is why I’ve been doing the 381+386 combo. I’d ordinarily just take the orange line like I usually do, but I’m not sure it’s safe yet
  2. So the 79 still isn’t running past Pulaski. At this point, I just can’t fathom why. So many of my co-workers are saying they’ve been having to walk from Pulaski to Cicero to catch the 379 (and catch an earlier 79 as a result)
  3. A general maintenance facility like what would typically be at end of line yards or something akin to a smaller Skokie Shops?
  4. Bus lanes is being generous, they’re really queue jumps (at least for 79th St)
  5. There seems to be like an hour or hour and a half between when it ends at Midway and when a 331 or 330 trip would start early enough. I guess it would stay at Midway during this time?
  6. Still split. If I’m understanding the schedule correctly, my guess is that one-off trips are covered by SW and trips that return to 95th are covered by S. Not sure tho
  7. The morning run is a 2:40-something am run that starts at midway, layovers at FedEx during the shift change and then (presumably) returns to midway by 3:30ish, Tu-Sa. Knowing that, I guess it somewhat makes more sense for West to cover that, since it’s not the full route (and only 1 run, I’m not sure what other Pace routes are running that early outside of other shift routes)
  8. The 390 I can see, the 379 makes little sense to me. Thanks
  9. Aren’t the 379 and 390 out of SW? Why would the flyers be on those routes?
  10. So was I the only one unaware the Eldo’s have free WiFi (at least the ones at SW and S as well, I think)?
  11. 79 still isn’t running to Cicero, so I’ve been forced to take the 381 to the 386 to work. I just wish they’d post an alert at least. I don’t even want to take the Orange Line cause of everything going on the the LKs and waiting at 63rd/King for the bus is just a no-go
  12. This artic was just chilling at Evergreen Plaza. Couldn’t make out number or garage, but I’m assuming 103rd. Taken yesterday
  13. Totally forgot about it ending at Western. There’s no guarantee however, the 21 (and for that matter, the 18, 35, 54, 54B and 60) are even running their full routes
  14. Yeah, I’ve used Lyft for about the first time since I partially moved back this week. The prices for Uber have been truly outstanding, especially in areas where there really shouldn’t be any surging (Burbank, Oak Lawn, etc)
  15. The entire Pink Line? Just because of Cicero/Cermak? I know Crowntown and Kingland have been active recently, but did they really need to shut the entire Pink Line down?
  16. They need to make an alert then. They stranded a lot of FedEx workers, a lot of people had to walk from Pulaski to Cicero to catch the 379 and since the orange line isn’t going to Roosevelt and going to work is a $30-$40 Uber 1-way, now I’m forced to take the 386-381-3 home or 386/379-55/47/59-3
  17. Apparently no 79 buses are going west of Pulaski
  18. Took these during my grocery shopping in Oak Park/River Forest
  19. Must’ve been because of the Uptown Target protests
  20. Well, not sure what’s going on this morning. Boarded a 79 bus for Ford City after having to run across the street to catch it (about 7 people waiting for a bus). Driver skipped a lot of people, at least 10+ folks waiting at the Red Line, Halsted, Racine and the 30-something folks on an artic that stopped at Wentworth. We get to Western, only for the supervisor to say she was going to Pulaski/81st instead and now there’s a 25 min wait for another WB bus. I’m at 79th/Western as I type and for once, there are no CTA buses here, layover or otherwise, and it’s been like this for at least 10 minutes.
  21. CTA service suspended at 9:30p Green Line trains did not run through, can't say for the rest of the lines. Trains were stopped and inspected for passengers before continuing, although Lake Branch Green Line trains didn't run through. Terminus for trains as follows: Orange Line: Midway to 35th/Archer Green Line: Harlem to California, 47th to 63rd Brown Line: Kimball to Belmont Purple Line Exp: Linden to Belmont Red Line: Howard to Belmont, 47th to 95th Pink Line: 54th/Cermak to Western Blue Line: O'Hare to Western, Forest Park to Western Almost every grocery store near us had been hit and we couldn't get to the ones downtown, so we ended up going to the Whole Foods in River Forest. Had to take the 75 to the 94, then get on the Green Line. Lot of people waiting for the bus at 47th/Western, for the 47, 49 and 94.
  22. The 47th, Western, Fullerton cordon is in effect once again. Not sure what this means, since some routes can be expected not to run (such as 1, 2, 31, downtown only routes, etc) but not sure what this means for routes that have a significant portion of their route inside the affected area (6, 9, 35, 50, etc)
  23. Yeah, I was actually planning to work Twilight & Midnight shifts tonight at FedEx for extra money, but after I got the curfew notice last night, I was going to wait, then I saw what was unfolding across the city and just decided to stay home.
  24. They made it over there? Sheesh. Today I've heard stuff going down around 63rd/Western, 63rd/Halsted, 95th/Western, 87th/Cottage, 87th/Dan Ryan, and more. Target shut down about half their Chicago locations for the next two weeks as well. Please get home safe and stay there.
