    Ghost Buses

    Does anyone know why theres always a row of buses parked alongside CTAs distribution center on Division st?? Every time I pass there theres a row of parked buses on the sidestreet
  4. I rarely see the 8325s from the Glen since they only have a few. Still have not ridden on one Yet when go down around 05th st terminal, I see them everywhere! Some displaying "90N N. Harlem"
  5. Unfortunately, because of long neglected upgrades, the Blue Line power cant handle a fleet of 5000s
  6. LOL! Right now! CTA5750 or "SHE"!!! Is biking to work! LOL!!! Trying to stay off Metra for a while! I may just suck it up and ride my bike to Jeff Pk so I can continue taking the Blue line. Thats my only other alternative
  7. Yes, It will be parked at the south end of the parade route at 55th There should be other fire dept vehicles, possibly also the CFD New Flyer 5858
  8. Just putting this out....I’ll out be at this weekends Bud Billiken Parade. I’ll be driving our Flxible Fire Academy Bus. If anyone wants tto see it. Ill be parking it at the south end of the parade route
  9. Logan Sq needs a major upgrade! Its the original station from 1970 Only a few cosmetic change were made in its long history. 4000s were still running when it opened!!!. With the gentrification of the area now Im sure it wont be long before it happens. I still remember when 4000 MANs ran on the old "89 No. Kedzie" route out of that terminal.
  10. Yeah, at Jeff Pk the Pace rep has been getting an earful from riders! Theyre not happy with the service change to the local buses. The Pulse stops are not convenient because many riders are seniors and they dont live near a Pulse stop. They will be forced to wait for the 270 local and if they miss it they have to wait an additional hour for the next one. In a few instances it will require riders to change their commute plans including mine! I know there can never be a solution to everyones commutes. But this is a drastic change that will have a serious effect for many riders. I will have to revert back to Metra in the morning. I chose to stop Metra because of the ticket prices nowadays. The Pace/Blue Line combination for me was a better and more reasonable option. I live in between the Austin and Central Pulse stops so its not an alternative for me.
  11. No, Becasue I live in between stops that are too far apart because of the angle of Milwaukee ave The regular service will not help as it will begin later in the AM I have to be in at work at 630am
  12. Well unfortunately I live along the 270 route between the Austin and Central stops of the Pulse service. Its a longer stretch along Milwaukee The regular service will no longer help me as it will begin later in the AM. I start at 630am. Its a long walk to either Pulse stop. Its not worth it I can catch Metra at Gladstone Pk I was riding the 270 from Jeff Pk yest. Pace had a "Pulse" represenative on board to tell us about the changes. I can tell you riders were not at all happy! This included an unrelated heated exchange between two passengers which almost became a physical altercation. So it was not a good day on bus #6425 or the Pace Rep! LOL!!!
  13. I ride these almost every day to and from Jeff Pk. The 6500s are very nice buses.
  14. Damn!, So Ill have to go back to Metra in the mornings if Pace is serious about this schedule change
  15. Im just about a daily rider of the 270 Im very eager to see how this Pulse service will work.
