Nah nah nah, why don't you analyze the route suggestion for a second? It's a direct connection to Midway from Downer's Grove via Lyons and Stickney. Not only that but it could greatly serve for a good variety of reasons.
1. To go to Midway from Stickney and South Berwyn, or even just to go to Cicero Avenue right now can be a hassle since one has to walk all the way to Harlem, take 307, take 62H, and the whole trip would take about 45mins including waiting times. Could vary depending on the traffic. A direct route to Midway from the North side of I-55 and the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal can help with easier access to the airport, the Orange Line, and other CTA and Pace bus routes.
2. There is no bus service between LaGrange Road and around Downer's Grove along Ogden Avenue. By adding the route I am suggesting (not imaginary since you hate the word, @Busjack), this would serve many of the residential areas in that service gap between routes 722 and 302. There are businesses crossing I-294 into DuPage County people, possibly even senior citizens, should be able to have access to.
3. To access Cicero Avenue just to head south on Cicero from South Berwyn / south side of Town of Cicero, one has to take a Pace route north to Cermak, take 21 and transfer to 54B. Seems like a ridiculous travel pattern. Pershing Road NEEDS A BUS to transport people along the industrial part of Pershing between Morton College and Cicero Ave. There is a Wal-Mart on Cicero and 33rd as well.
