  1. Pace 2019 Budget

    Posted on the website's main page, it looks like the four remaining bus routes will be eliminated after April 1. The Saturday service of the #504 will be eliminated April 6. But the Saturday service of the #209 Busse, and weekday only services of the #304 Cicero-LaGrange & #326 Irving Park is listed as "TBD in June".
  2. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    CTA has release modifications to the bus stops again at 95th & State, effective Sunday. I guess they're done with the construction at the north terminal. Some of the changes, the #29 returns to its original bus stop on the north bridge, but the Grayhound will stay at the south terminal. The #34/119 moves to the bays on the west side of the north terminal. The #108 & #352 moves to the east side of the terminal.
  3. Posted Stops Only

    Looks like the #208 Golf will be next, starting March 3rd.
  4. Bus service expansions/extensions

    The press release says its going to extend the routing from 109th/Doty to 103rd & Stony. Doesn't say about what the routing is going to be to the Garage.
  5. December 2018 Bus Changes

    This could be the reason, based on this article. Cinespace Studios (which have bought property from the old Ryerson steel plant in that vicinity) have leased portions of 16th street east of Washtenaw, after the City Council last year approved its latest expansion plan. That includes rerouting the #18 bus. And from Crain's:
  6. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    CTA has released the bus stop relocations, as they open up the north terminal one week from today. And it looks like the #95 won't have to turn onto the terminals, as its bus stops will be on the west end of the 95th bridge, which makes total sense.
  7. Pace/CTA North Shore Coordination Plan

    CTA has posted notice of discontinuation of the #205. And notice of the #206 Chicago Ave. school trips beginning 8/27.
  8. Pace/CTA North Shore Coordination Plan

    Pace just posted the new schedules for the 208 (map) & 213 (map). It will go in effect one week from Sunday for the 208, and the following day for the 213.
  9. Pace/CTA North Shore Coordination Plan

    Looks like CTA & Pace has came up with new proposal to serve ETHS students. From the City of Evanston website posted Thursday, the Draft Proposal calls for six morning & afternoon trips (in peak direction) to ETHS, instead of just one AM & PM trip. One of the six trips will be a "rerouted" CTA #206 from the Howard Red Line to ETHS via Chicago Ave.
  10. Pace/CTA North Shore Coordination Plan

    CTA released the slide presentation from that hearing last Tuesday (4/24).
  11. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    It wouldn't make any sense to have another bus going into the terminal, since passengers could access the 95th terminal on either side. Otherwise, why are they're building a pedestrian bridge to connect to the two houses? So that means when the westbound bus gets to State and alights the passengers at mid-bridge, they have to go around the terminal and then come back out and proceed west of State, instead of having a bus stop at mid-bridge so they don't have to go into the terminal? That's eating up several minutes if they do it the long way.
  12. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Unless its a short turn, you wouldn't need the 95 on either terminal, since its going straight through.
  13. Halsted goes all-night long.

    Wow! A #352 Nightcar. Didn't see this coming. But it's about time. A Pace route that I felt that needed owl service was the #352.
  14. 270 front/back. Only one northbound 270 trip in the morning is going all the way to Hawthorn.
  15. Here's the 574 front & back. Along with the 565, 572 also have those notations as well. Only difference is that 572 have more Cs and 565 have more Ts. I assume the ones with the Ts that the buses is probably laying over at the Metra station, while many of the other routes are laying over at Washington & Sheridan. And the Cs are probably going into the station and then come back out and layover at Sheridan.
