  1. What you guys are hearing are the cooling fans located on the drivers side rear for the engine. It has nothing to do with the a/c.
  2. It has nothing to do with FG not wanting them. It was done because the Novas have a better drivers shield and 103rd had an increase in driver assaults. That is also why you are going to see Novas at garages that never had them before.
  3. I doubt you would ever see electric buses on those routes since the end terminals aren’t actual CTA property or bus turn arounds. Those routes sit on the streets for their layovers. Except for 81W which layovers at Cumberland Blueline.
  4. Summer pick/schedule goes into effect this Sunday June 16th.
  5. Buses don’t go to the South Shop for farebox repairs. Fareboxes are fixed at the garage the bus is assigned to.

    It was the result of the high winds and the slippery road conditions.
  7. What was different about the destination sign?
  8. It’s a vent for something cause the current Novas that are in service have the same vent. It’s just a different shape cut into the body
  9. I have never seen a sign on a CTA bus that states that. Also its not the operator who wants the bus packed to the doors, its CTA who ignores federal regulations on that issue. It’s a complete safety hazard with passengers blocking the right side mirror with their heads and bumping into the operator’s body/arm.
  10. The Nova buses will still operate normally when the driver’s door is open, but it becomes a safety issue cause of it swinging. The door is required to be secure at all times the bus is in service.

    The 8300’s were not loaned to Chicago for the 4th of July. FG was helping out Chicago for the heavy passenger load. FG operators, FG buses, all pulled out of FG to start Route 66.

    3091 yard move

    This TMC was at FG for awhile before being at Skokie Shops. Unit number is TI-2
  13. Yes there is an option in the Clever Device to change the destination for short turns, but it is not something that can be done swiftly as you put it. So alot of operators don't cause it's easier just to tell people verbally and get back on schedule.
  14. If the engine is restarted right away the display won't turn back on. The only thing the driver did wrong was he should of waited for about a minute before restarting. On the new Novas this doesn't have to be done.
