  1. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    NP did have novas back in 2010 so they might be able to get them again. FG: definitely probable 77th: probably not as they mostly use 1000's 103rd: could be but no bus changes to give evidence.
  2. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    1890 and 1924 are at FG, so i predict that the 8325's will go to NP the garage where 1890 and 1924 are from. They are most likely there to replace old novas from FG. There will probably be more buses from NP to FG.
  3. A 2006 D40LF with A different Sign

    same as 1249?
  4. CTA buses to go all electric by 2040?

    If that is the plan then after the 8325's no more new non electric buses assuming the 8325's last 20 years.
  5. New Flyer DE40LF 804 Out Of Service

    the 800's might last that long if 804 is not retired.
  6. 4000-series DE60LF - Updates - Rehabs

    Will the TV's in the old jump buses be taken out? I was on 4105 the other day and it still had the TV.
  7. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    Ok how won't it work? jajuan's issue happens once or twice a year, on the day that it happens it might seem big but overall it's pretty minor and in addition that issue has nothing to do with what i'm saying.
  8. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    i would guess it's more likely they will start running on a weekday rather than a weekend
  9. New Flyer DE40LF 804 Out Of Service

    the retirement is about to finish.
  10. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    if Artics were put on routes including but not limited to : 3, 20, 35, 36, 49, 66, 77, and 79 the cta may be able to take out some runs reducing operating costs without packed buses. This would work well on the 49 as it has a leap frog stop pattern and extra Dwell time becomes less of a problem. The 66 and 79 have already been tested but i'm not sure if there was a schedule change which may have caused the problem.
  11. 6400-series Nova LFS - Updates & Retirements

    well 6746 is also running. it's on the 152 right now
  12. Up to 45 Electric Buses

    if proterra's running the downtown shuttle had problems the people running them would have told the cta about it. so those problems might not be widespread
  13. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    7903 was on the 100 the other day
  14. The Breakdown Thread

    thats pretty minor compared to other head on crashes like the one on madison that one sunday morning
  15. Random CTA

    There are only 4 artics in service today all from kedzie. does anyone know why this is. i would imagine alot of the buses are packed.
