  1. Spring 2019 Rail Pick April 28th

    It's now official
  2. Your New Blue - O'Hare Branch Rehab

    It's not happening anytime soon, the funding is not available. If there was a dire need to rehab, it would've been fast tracked. We know the infrastructure is bad, but it's more cost effective to collaborate both projects at once.
  3. Spring 2019 Rail Pick April 28th

    April 28th, but technically the trips end after the PM Rush Period on April 26th but are still active as part of the pick until the new pick is in effect.
  4. 4 car Yellow Line train

    For snow operation and to keep more traction. The first 2 cars in the chosen direction are used in service due to limited 2 car berthing at the Skokie stations, especially at the Dempster terminal.
  5. New CTA Maps Are Out

    Those exact reasons and that in September the Route 11 pilot ended. It's kind of unnecessary to have a superfluous map floating, but the September map did have an honorable nod to George Krambles, so it's kind of a collectible of sorts
  6. More 6000's repatriated??

    What time will they arrive is the question?
  7. Rail Service Alerts-Discussion Thread

    The Red Line service to Ashland/63rd is still "technically" effective until the new rail picks are in effect on Sunday. 95th is now back into full operation as the necessary track work needed to move into the next phase of the project is now complete. The decision to cut the service before thanksgiving makes sense, the customer demand for rush hour levels of service won't be needed due to the holiday, hence the Blue Line's UIC and Red Line's Ashland trips are targeted not to operate on Friday.
  8. New Car Maps

    The current system and route map cards both reflect the rerouted service and Washington/Wabash. They do not include the recently completed Wilson station for the purple line. The updated route cards might not be included in some rail cars due to an lack of oversight. Most of changes happen during rush hour anyway, so as long as the map is 95% current, the majority of customers and visitors shouldn't become confused.
  9. Wilson Red/Purple Line Station Rebuild

    I say that the car cards work for now, information travels quicker through social media these days anyway, so why spend the extra money until it's necessary. The Red Line reroute is still in effect, so why reflect a minor change when you have a major change still in effect.
  10. Wilson Red/Purple Line Station Rebuild

    Track 4 has already been in use by the Purple Line express. NB red line continues to use track 2 due to the completion of the NB platform, so the track realignments have been finished for sometime. Welcome back, full time to Wilson Purple Line Express!
  11. Return of the 11 & 31 Bus

    Well the 31 had the same pilot formula so it really came down to who would use the service. Unfortunately for the 11, the market had changed in a way that people adapted to other modes of travel. Marketing was another problem, which could have been marketed as the LincolnLine or the BrownLink to attract Brown Line commuters to another way of commuting through the corridor. Farewell Route 11 extension
  12. Return of the 11 & 31 Bus

    The Grand Finale!
  13. Washington/Wabash Station Build

    CDOT's Rebekah Scheinfeld stated at the July City Club Luncheon that State/Lake will receive a major renovation "soon". The station I'd worry about is LaSalle/Vanburen.
  14. Washington/Wabash Station Build

    First it would be disruptive to close a station during the work week and second, because the city wanted a September deadline, which is being met 3 days earlier than anticipated.
  15. Washington/Wabash Station Build

    Washington/Wabash & Randolph/Wabash will be in service together during the Labor Day weekend, with Randolph officially closing on September 3rd at 2:30 am.
