  1. I had the same thought as well since seniors transfer from the 15, 47, and Red Line at 47th. The routing I would pick would be State, Root, Princeton, 43rd, then Wentworth for SB trips and LaSalle on NB trips or 43rd to State then down to 47th to Halsted continuing to 51st. I don't think it would be necessary for a direct station stop but again I did say seniors used that as a transfer point. The 39 already has a lot of connections to make so the next best option would be to reroute the 24 to Princeton between Root and 43rd. If there was a 44 extension I would just extend all the way to
  2. Service on the 36 seems to run between 7 mins to 20 mins, 7 mins being Saturday service and 20 being Sunday service so an increase would only be needed on Sunday to about 12 or 13 mins. Artics on the 36 would be a struggle to work with between Addison and Diversey but it works on Marine Drive and Clarendon so it's possible. The 146 operating to Devon & Clark would be fine but I think service would duplicate the service of the 149 you proposed but with a few different areas served between 3900 N Sheridan and Foster & Sheridan. The idea of the 151 Stockton/Michigan would result in the di
  3. Caught 701 on the 4 and surprisingly it was a run from Illinois Center to 115th. Wonder if CTA is testing on some of the longer routes or just the need for more buses. 20201221_185439(1).mp4
  4. Even with CTA getting the largest cut, I would guess service cuts won't be as bad as Pace but I'd propose just to stay on the safe side the route elimination of 1, 2, X9, 11, 18, 24, 31, 37, 48, X49, 51, 54A, 55A, 57, 85A, 86, 88, 96, 100, 108, 120, 121, 124, 125, 134, 135, 136, 143, 148, 165, 169, 171, 172 and 192 until further notice. Service reductions on the N5, 6, 7, 8, 8A, J14, 26, 39, 43, 44, 52A, 53A, 54B, 55N, 56, 59, 62H, 63W, 65, 68, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 78, 80, 84, 87, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 103, 106, 146, 147, 152, 156, 157, 201, and 206 to about every 20 to 40 minutes. All ra
  5. Are fares being collect on UP-NW because earlier this morning I was heading to Des Plaines and the first person in the front of the car fare was about to be collected then I guess something clicked in his mind and he didn't check anyone's fare? Sorry if this question was already answered.
  6. Yeah she was ahead of schedule so she pulled over directly to the curb and he every tree branch before realizing her mirror was broke.
  7. Not to sure if this is an accident but was on the 1277 on the #4 heading to 49th and on 48th the driver ran into about 10 tree branches and broke the right mirror.
  8. I decided to ride the #94 California full route today and I don't know if it will last like this or they'll switch it back. First off the driver was going 25 to 30mph the whole time which makes the route feel really slow. Second after Madison the bus was completely empty until Chicago & Grand and I do not see people leaving the Blue Line traveling to the Green Line because the location and how the area around the Green Line looks won't help that. Third when he reached Belmont & Campbell he continued down Campbell and missed he turn and had to turn around in a empty parking lot which sh
  9. Does anybody know how the #8 is running after 47th Street? I was at 47th & Hoyne today waiting to go eastbound on the 47 and several #8's came by (the first one crowded) but heading towards Western Blvd. then they headed north. I just wanted to know where they go after that, to 43rd, Pershing, or 35th back to Halsted.
  10. I saw the thread at took some time to think out what I would do if I could run CTA for a day but this will be a long post so be ready to read. I would form a South Side Rehab Plan because it's needed 1 Bronzeville/Union Station will be eliminated as it only stands to service Union Station Experiment later AM and earlier PM service on the 2 Hyde Park Express 3 King Drive and 4 Cottage Grove would operate with the X3 and X4 express routes 6 Jackson Park Express and 26 South Shore Express would operate as the 26 South Shore Express from 103rd/Stony Island to Chicago/Mich
  11. Ok you convinced me about southbound but northbound would be a even more of struggle because of the support beams in the middle of 95th and I've been on several new flyers that have got stuck or scrapped making that turn as it is sharp, but it's possible an artic can make both turns.
  12. Being a very frequent rider of the 4, having artics would mean they would only operate between Illinois Center and 95th which is smart but when school starts back up 65% of the rush hour ridership comes from between 115th and 95th but artics can't operate the turns at 95th and Cottage Grove to go further south and either at 115th. Artics can be smart but then new flyers and novas heading to 115th would be crowded as usual and since they come every 20 minutes it would be a major headache having artics crowded and new flyer and novas crowded.
  13. Yeah, I have rode the extension of the 111A and was quite upset with the bus not serving Olive Harvey and only having 2 added bus stops, one not even an actually bus stop. I absolutely agree with the your statement on how most people going to the community center will drive. It's right around a busy highway and very industrial so no ones really going to ride the bus over there and anyways the 106 bus stops at Woodlawn so you could just walk from one bus and be there. I just think it was a last minute idea and not really thought out. If the bus served Olive Harvey, people that live around Rosel
  14. From what I've seen and rode, the 47th schedule was a bit all over the place in the beginning but I think the drivers are getting used to it. Only thing is they've seem to decrease the number of turnarounds at Kedize Orange Line which makes the wait sometimes a little longer than before. I know nothing about the 62, but the route was always strange to me. I honestly don't know why, it just is. The 111A extension is really useless as too no one never really rides past Pullman Plaza and there's not even an actually stop for the Pullman Community Center (and the center is located at 104
