  1. Spring 2019 Rail Pick April 28th

    Ashland/63rd Red Line Rush Period Trips Discontinued Red Line Impact: Service Change Monday, April 29, 2019 to TBD Full Description: How does this affect my trip? Red Line service between Howard and Ashland/63rd will no longer operate during the morning or evening rush periods. Red Line service will run between Howard and 95th at all times. Why is service being changed? The Howard-Ashland/63rd Red Line trips are being discontinued due to the substantial completion of construction for the 95th Street Terminal Improvement Project.

    Are there any other changes with the other lines, specifically the Blue Line rush hour service between Racine and Jefferson Park using 5000s from the Pink Line?

    Oh wow...it's back in service?

    Will the hours of service change and will it serve Olive Harvey College?

    Sometimes every 20 minutes between 11p and 4am due to single track work in the subway or south end.

    It looks like the Red Line will have all trains going to 95th during weekday rush hours ending its run to/from Ashland/63rd, according to the pick sheets I looked at out of Howard. Also the midnight runs will go back to 836-840.
  9. More Bus Moves

    It definitely helps with the crowds on Belmont in the PM WB between Sheridan and Kimball. I'm sure they could use more than the one trip in the AM going Eastbound That bus stays packed.

    It appears right side up from my page. I'm not showing anything upside down. I go through my files and pick the pictures and send. That's it.

    5087-5088 was parked in the Howard Yard earlier today and I rode 5158 leaving Howard tonight on run #939.
  12. Bus service expansions/extensions

    It seems like CTA had a meeting on extending service on the 111A Pullman Shuttle today. I'm not sure to where, but I believe service will extend north to 103rd/Stony Island to connect with the J14, 15, 26, 28, 106 and 353 bus routes.
  13. 5000-series - Updates

    Rode in 5100 going SB towards 95th from Howard with Red Purple Yellow map inside.
  14. Metra wish list.

    I found some interesting information regarding Metra down the road improvements especially regarding the Rock Island. Check it out. http://www.ctariders.org/Metra-s--5-billion-plan-for-improvements.html
  15. CTA 'L' Rosters

    It seems like the Pink Line trains are jammed packed during the rush hours. As a suggestion why not run 6 cars during the rush hours? Since Pink/Green interchange rail cars like Red/Purple/Yellow, it should be doable. Example, if Pink Line runs 8 or 9 trains @ 4 car consist during rush hours it would only need 16-18 additional cars or 2 more cars per consist making it 48-54 cars in revenue service. Pink has 50 cars assigned on its yard. You have 16 borrowed Red cars for Blue Line short turn Racine to Jeff Park. 54th yard can hold an estimated 100 cars if my memory serves me right. So including up to 3 spare cars, you can maybe store 10-20 cars or 'interchange' 18 more cars from Green during rush hour. Would that be possible to do?
