  1. Apparently the driver wasant aware that the fueling connection wasant compatible with the pumps at the fuel site. I had to get out and explain that he would have to go to CTA and speak with them about it.
  2. Found this today at a city fuel site off of 35th st. Got to look inside. It is #6539 There was a second bus. Didnt see that one up close.
  3. Plain and simple, FG dosent get the respect they should by contrast to other garages! They seem to get shunned more often as opposed to the other garages in the system. You will never see this at 77th, 103rd or Chicago ave!
  4. Its because the garage dosent get any respect Plain and simple!
  5. That's weird because the buses were displaying "54 Cicero to North" another had "80 Irving Park to Cumberland"
  6. Today heading home from work. I spotted three electric buses running down Clinton st at the post office building, all wrapped They were definitely CTA because they all had white LED route signs showing. They had very curved rear ends
  7. My gosh I wish buses sounded like this!!! Closest we would probably get were the GMC 5307s
  8. When do you plan to be in Chicago with the bus?
  9. I have the Flxible Metro at the fire academy for the weekend if anyone wants to check it out
  10. About six new Novas sitting along the fence including 8319. Also CTA GMC #9375 fishbowl was out in the lot. Still in its familiar green paint scheme. I wonder if CTA is making that bus part of its historical fleet program they revived
  11. Bus #8218 on the #88 Higgins was broke down at Harlem earlier First time i see one on Higgins
  12. I left CTA almost twelve years ago! It kills me to see the very same Nova buses I helped break in, still running out of the same garage! Hardly any updates in in equipment in years! Im finally glad to see CTA pigheaded management make sound decisions and give FG and many NW side bus riders finally new equipment! I can finally say I can enjoy riding a Higgins bus again soon!
  13. Glad to see FG finally get its due!!! That garage deserved to have new buses!
  14. They should send 2600s back to the Red and Green lines.
  15. Yesterday while traveling on the south side near 103rd st garage I passed a parking lot just west of Olive Harvey college. I saw two exCTA Novas in a vehicle lot wrapped in City Colleges of Chicago. Anyone have an idea what theyre using these for???
