  1. Pace Bus Moves

    6235 is now at West.
  2. More Bus Moves

    That was bus 1366.
  3. The Breakdown Thread

    Alright I do have a couple PACE breakdowns: 6373 broken down near Ontario & Harlem at around 5:30 PM on October 9, 2017 and 6669 was broken down unknown of damage around 4:45 PM on October 19, 2017 near the new Target near Harlem & Lake.
  4. Favorite Buses of the Past and Present

    I came to Chicago around 2001, so I do have buses from the past and present of the CTA. Past: 5800. They sounded really good especially prior to rehab. Really tough and gets a great ride! Past: 4400. Great takeoff on the bus! Not a fan of the buses that have the higher pitch engine mainly around the late 4700 buses and the 4800 buses. Actually I never liked the Flxibles and I never got to ride a MAN during that time. Now onto present. 1000: All buses are really great at driving, so sorry for 1342 getting in a fire because I rode 1342 in October 2015 and that bus was a great tough beast! It started going when the light turned green and had a great ISM! 7900: These buses have a great ISL9 and ZF transmission! Goes really well with the newer Novas! Great bus and has a love to me since I started riding one on Route 70 in 2015 and it was so great! Riding them in summer especially on a rainy day gives this bus a great look! 4000 DE60LF: Love the diesel-electric setup on these buses! I know they are for rehab soon but they sound really great! The ISL sounds really great and the Allison makes it even better! 4300/4333: I love the 4300-4332 more than the 4333-4399 series, they sound so good and I did ride a few. The diesel buses really are tough especially riding on the 147 back when I lived in Chicago. Now I live in a suburb of Chicago that's Oak Park and I usually ride the Forest Glen Buses like the 1000, 7900, and 6400 buses and they do keep buses nice! I barely ride the North Parks anymore. The 6400 buses I do not like really but they do sound good actually. Bus fleets I want to ride on soon: 800 (if they last), 700.
  5. Great info, but the roster needs updating because buses like 6454 and 6460 are not in service anymore.
  6. New Eldorados?

    Okay, thanks!
  7. New Eldorados?

    I have proof.
  8. More Bus Moves

    Yes, I agree. I rode 6722 yesterday. It still sounded and rode good, but it is really showing age.
  9. New Eldorados?

    2 things I also noticed is 6366 is back on the roster and 6297 is no longer in service.
  10. New Eldorados?

    You are wrong for 6652, the bus is 6651 actually.
  11. New Eldorados?

    I rode 6294 this weekend on the 318 and its age is starting to come too. Paint was starting to peel off too but at the rear door, only one of the overhead lights for the door that can be enabled for it to be unlocked was working and the other one was out.
  12. My First Bus Ride - Pace (RTA)

    Here is what I remember for my first bus rides from PACE. All buses are from the West Division. 6000-Series Orion VI: 311 6162-Series NABI 40-LFW: 311 6262-Series NABI 40-LFW: 322 6323-Series ElDorado: 309 6600-Series NABI 35-LFW: 307
  13. Pace Bus Moves

    6261 has moved to West and is currently operating on the 318.
  14. Pace Roster

    Since many Webwatch sightings, I did not see bus 6366 in service on any route. Does anyone know why 6366 has not been going out?
  15. What's Left for Pace's Orion VI's 6000s?

    I will agree with you.
