  1. The Breakdown Thread

    that would not have happened if that bus was articulated
  2. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    there are passengers during rush hour who still live and work along the routes and still go downtown at a time other than rush hour. someone who lives on Barry and Sheridan can either take the 151 downtown which could take as much as 30 minutes or walk two blocks north and take 146 which would be at most 8 minutes. if you can't tell already most people would go for the 146 and those 146's get packed and the the stop that's the most crowded is Belmont and Lake shore. same thing goes for the 146 vs. 147 at Foster. The main point is to reduce crowding and to provide faster service. Honestly what is the downside. there are so many 151's that usally come at two at a time surely some of those buses could be used on the 143 or 148 there actually may be. some tourists going out for the day or some kids going on a day off school. even if there was not demand there are still not in service buses going up north which some or all could go up Michigan rather than LSD and accept passengers without too much delay.

    The 143 and 148 should run both ways AM rush to PM rush and run on the weekends. In other words run in a similar pattern to the 146 and 147. I can't say this will work but i don't see how it will cause too much extra cost. as the 143 could be interlined with the Belmont+Halsted 151's and the 148 with the 22 on weekends and 146 or Devon+Clark 151's on weekdays.
  4. More Bus Moves

    you may be right as both buses ran for 7 or 8 hours straight when they were at kedzie i have also done some miscalculation 77th ran 701 from 6:10 to 9:50 according to the math's tracker on october 4th but that's still only 2 hours and 40 minutes a day
  5. More Bus Moves

    oh, well thats good they can actually run for more than 45 minutes a day
  6. More Bus Moves

    it seems likely 701 left 77th and went to another garage because it has not been on the tracker since October 4th

    155 Devon Should go west to Cumberland or should get taken over by pace after Kedzie

  10. What to Do With Surplus Artics

  11. What to Do With Surplus Artics

  12. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    4084, 4091 and 4107 are on the 3 terminating at the water tower
  13. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    i was talking about the NABIs not the artics
  14. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    they will only be temporary because there old but that could work so the cta can save funds mabye some 35 footers as well
  15. What to Do With Surplus Artics

    another idea is to sell some artics to pace to use on the 352 and other routes that might need them
