  1. 7000-series - Procurement

    Sorry to go a bit off topic here, but coincidentally enough on the Metrobús BRT system in Mexico City, the seats on the front section of each bus are pink because they’re reserved for women. (Though this is only really enforced during rush hours, as I was able to ride in that section in the offpeak without any complaints.) Supposedly it’s to curb sexual harassment.
  2. The Breakdown Thread

    4061 broke down on the EB #12 at Damen. All the passengers were waiting outside in the sweltering heat until 4030 arrived. I don't know how long they waited, since I was only passing by, but hopefully not too long.

    I've heard of Hegewisch; I was just poking fun at the typo.
  4. Random CTA

    Never heard of Gegewisch before
  5. Washington/Wabash Station Build

    When I first saw that alert at my station, I was wondering why they would keep the stations open together. I guess I now know why.
  6. More Bus Moves

    That makes me curious as to how often the #60 has artics. The only artic I've ever seen on there was over 2 years ago, and I ride that route often, but not during the rush.

  8. 2016 South Side Service Changes

    Did anyone the typo on the #26 extension map? Look at the label for "Mackinew" below 106th.
  9. Random CTA

    I started seeing Nordica more often after the spring pick. I don't go to the north side a lot, so it might have started before then.
  10. 700-series XE40 - Deliveries & Assignments

    I know, but I just can't remember the color.
  11. 700-series XE40 - Deliveries & Assignments

    I saw one of them on the #21 earlier this week. I don't remember if it was 700 or 701.
  12. An email newsletter I'm subscribed to shared an article about how a podcast host was given a route that an app determined would be the longest possible ride on the NYC subway. The route would be able to revisit a station or transfer between lines as many times as needed, but could not backtrack on any segment of a line. (The article also includes the app used to determine the route.) It makes me wonder what would be the longest ride you could take on the L, using the same method.
  13. Trivia Corner

    It's the N5 South Shore Night Bus.
  14. Red Line Extension (RLE)

    On a slightly similar note, I was wondering how bus service in the area would change after the extension is opened. Would the CTA reduce service on or eliminate some routes? (Has this been asked before?) I imagine that they might cut back the #103 and #106 to the 103rd station. Is there a lot of ridership on the #112 between the 95th station and 103rd/Vincennes? If there isn't, I think they would reroute it to the 103rd station, so it could still serve as a Red Line feeder route for Julian HS.
  15. Random CTA

    3081-3082-2976-2975 were all in an out-of-service consist going EB on the Pink Line at Kedzie several minutes ago. Why would they be on the Pink Line? Are they being moved to another yard?
