  1. CTA Bus Garage Rosters

    Looking at that video Theres no doubt of course that bus was traveling at a high rate of speed! This operator is clearly at fault! That should be the number #1 question! This operator obviously had no control of through this intersection! A professional and safe operator would have had good control of this bus which could have avoided such a violent crash. Any thoughts???

    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.

    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.

    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!

    That's weird because the buses were displaying "54 Cicero to North" another had "80 Irving Park to Cumberland"

    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

    My gosh I wish buses sounded like this!!! Closest we would probably get were the GMC 5307s

    When do you plan to be in Chicago with the bus?

    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

    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!

    Glad to see FG finally get its due!!! That garage deserved to have new buses!
