  1. Sounds like a suggestion to the planning office.
  2. Mostly yes. 392's have in the past become a 303, 307, or 318, or even a 757, depending on the time of day.
  3. Under normal circumstances, extra 40' buses out of North have been used for Waukegan School services or Ravinia. I'm not surprised some of those are still on hold. South Holland means those are holding space.
  4. They need new coaches, but also now's a good time to fix the operations and scheduling to accommodate (or generate) new riders. The railcars are a step (maybe 15 years too late), but Metra still needs to get out of the 1960's with service.
  5. The darn things aren't built (and four years out) and we're speculating over car #'s....
  6. Thank you for joining us, and my condolences to you and the family.
  7. Those feeders have been gone for the better of the last ten years (tried to convert them over to Vanpools with little luck back in 2010). I think those ideas should be included in whatever modifications to the plan in the future since you're only as good as the services you have for forward mobility.
  8. You're right though. Lack of investment in the hood is a failure of governance. And I think the last decade (Great Recession notwithstanding) has made things worse.
  9. Remember too that 6 and 14 swapped names with the 2003 restructuring (6, 14, and 26) with different markets. No historical marker for the 26, but at least that and the J/14 can now jump on LSD. Jackson Park 6 is basically a local zone. 15, like the 28 local is to differentiate express and local (without making the nomenclature too difficult).
  10. Prairie State College. Homewood. And residences along both sides of 80. 352 is one of the busiest routes in the system, always has been.
  11. Almost begs the question if anyone has contacted customer service about it...
  12. Harmless. Welcome to the forums and carry on.
  13. The hill that I will die on is that Metra needs to stop ordering gallery cars and start messing around with the Bombardier bi level approaches. After riding Caltrain on and off for five years since I moved here, the gallery cars aren't functional at all. Especially with the bike cars.
