  1. 7982 was a bus used as a relief point for #8 Halsted that day. With COVID, no where for Drivers to go. The bus has the engine on bypass so it doesn't shut off every 15 minutes.
  2. I was talking to my Aunt and she said that the signs "Bus is Full" or "Bus may run express" sometimes get left over from former runs or the driver doesn't change it after they release passengers. I have also seen busses with two people say bus may run express and that might be a reason.

    C got 60FT busses from NP.

    I just heard the Mayor. This is due to 6400’s not having shields. All bus drivers need to be shielded right now for COVID19.
  5. That is why I saw 4300 with a Ventra transponder at the back door.

    I THINK it’s chronological. 308/309 AM, 319/320PM

    Did you see they had a Ventra reader at the back door also? Possibly testing dual boarding during training?

    Kneeling buses

    Drivers have sometimes put a piece of paper or napkin to make sure the switch to lower the bus is always down.
  9. A CTA 4300 series Arctic crashed into a tree while on the 147 this afternoon, unknown the number bus.

    I think 8032, 8086,1704 and 1790 are all just what South Shops has on hand. SR is Storage Randolph where they store busses under lower Randolph SH is Storage Halstead where the #8 stores off of Divison and Halstead SN is Storage Navy Pier where the 65 and 66 store their busses during the day. The storages are to help mitigate the busses going back to their home garages during off peak times

    8011 is back at Chicago doing the 66 Chicago route. Maybe 8011 was briefly at SS and 77th sent it out on the street.
  12. The 8325’s have GREAT A/C. The tinted windows and no window in the back help keep the bus cool. They need to retrofit all 7900’s to be like 8325’s.
  13. Thank you! that is the exact sound. I thought all of the engines or transmissions were bad but every single 1000 I encountered today had that sound.
  14. Are the 1000 series not good in the heat? All of the busses I’ve heard from 103,77 and 74 all sound line their engines are over heating and it is very loud.

    Have a quick question, did CTA recently update the clever devices in busses? I was on the 12 bus and it looked completely different. Almost worse then before.
