  1. LMAO!!! Have you ridden the Red or Blue lines lately??? Just about 90 percent of these rules are broken each and every day!!!
  2. Even so! Im sure there will still be massive headaches as congested as the area is already! As ,many of us here already know, you shut down one or two through streets street in Wrigleyville It causes major headaches for the surrounding area And it will be even more of a mess during Cubs games And there will no doubt be some slowdowns with all through that junction during the work process
  3. The ramp wont be completed until 2025!!!! Wow I cant imagine the headaches riders and people from the neighborhood are going to be experiencing. Thats a long time!!!
  4. I cant imagine a worse possible location to operate on sight. They were very, very lucky there wasant a Lake/Wabash type event at that location! An eight and a six car train on an active and busy "S" curve in morning rush Wow!!!
  5. Just saw the 4000s at the 63rd/Ryan headed towards Ashland
  6. Who knows what happened yesterday between a Brown Line and Purple line train? At the North/Halsted on the "S; curve (The news media saying it happened at Sedgewick, not accurate!) Was it an actual collision? If so, How does this happen?? Operator going through a block?? Inattentive operator??
  7. 804 was on the 82 Kimball/Homan this morning I thought they retired this bus by now
  8. It was at the Bud Billiken I was parked right behind it with my Flxible
  9. I can still remember my first Nova I ever drove out of FG before deliveries began, 6758! Cant believe its still running after all these years
  10. Saw 8348 this morning on the 85 Central 8346 last night!
  11. I thought thats what had happened. But I wont be surprised if it did
  12. What happened to FGs 8325s? Haven’t seen them in weeks!
  13. I dont know why it irks me everytime I see it. But this morning while waiting for a Pulse bus!,Yeah! A Pulse bus! YUKKKK! I see 6730, I cant stand looking at where the side number is placed almost to the rear It just looks like it dosent belong there! LOL!
  14. Saw 6835 getting towed this morning on the Ryan SB . I’m sure it was heading to SS.

    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
  18. 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"
  19. Unfortunately, because of long neglected upgrades, the Blue Line power cant handle a fleet of 5000s
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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.
