  1. CTA buses to go all electric by 2040?

    74th to go on 63rd.
  2. CTA buses to go all electric by 2040?

    That's the picture outside of hq. I travel that street too much to not know theres a luxury apartment building across the street. Interesting though it's at chicago if chicago is not getting them. There is a bus training center at chicago so it's probably there for the training facility.
  3. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    8011 also has one was on the #66 the other day.
  4. CTA buses to go all electric by 2040?

    I think it was a bad move to let the 800s and 900s slip away. They could have done a rehab on those to keep them going or do a complete rehab with new components or technology. They basically had a working frame. Now someone I forget who bought the 900s and did just that. It's not a big fleet but something you could test the viability of.
  5. CTA buses to go all electric by 2040?

    It's not copyright infringement if I dont post the link. LOL. Getting back on topic You know it would seem more cheaper to invest in electric bus technology in shorter buses like the one pictured above. Dont know why cta abandoned that after the optimas. Not every bus is a nabi. Pace has definitely used its resources more smartly. Who has all the short buses who has the cng buses who is saving money??? I dont know why cta dont invest in hybrids. It may not be electric but it's a step in the right direction. I surprised theres not federal regulations that state all new bus orders must have a percentage of cleaner.propulsion and I dont mean clean diesels which is basically just lipstick on a pig.
  6. Return of the 11 & 31 Bus

    Why it has no ridership. If I was working out there I would definitely bid on it.

    Check out my youtube. I have the press release on those buses via the local media
  8. Pace 35th Anniversary Legacy Fleet

    I wonder why they just didnt get wraps for the front. That why I said the north shore bus looked good. The Heritage one not so good. This should be interesting. I think the sides dont look bad you almost get a feel of a fishbowl. Dont like the 2 different sized windows. Would be hilarious if they put the rear vent on there on a wrap and put the tail. To bad they couldnt marry the lights together and use the actual brake lights as part of the wrap. That would be funny if they did the front. I'm interested to see the new look!!
  9. Pace 35th Anniversary Legacy Fleet

    That actually doesnt look too bad
  10. More Bus Moves

    Interesting about novas at kedzie. I was told they couldnt fit through the wash rack there. That's why they have never had any. Could be cta wants to put a few new buses at each garage so the mechanics and operators can get familiar with the buses. Probably if kedzie did get novas it might get a few new 8325s but would have to get a majority of 7900s. Maybe 3-6 new buses at a garage could be a reality.
  11. CDL Training

    Yeah that's supposed to be a FBI background check. I think that checks the background for the life of the individual. I had to submit to one when I crossed the border into Canada last summer. But I tried crossing without a passport. I did get across though after about 45 minutes of checking and interrogation. Ironically the Canadians said the americans would give me a harder time coming back. But they only talked to me for 5 minutes and there was no car check. But I looked at it like I'm an american citizen. I could always complain to the embassy. If anything I have less rights to enter canada.
  12. CDL Training

    Something that's kind of weird with school buses is that they claim they are training you for a class S license. Why not just call it a class B because basically it's the same thing. Maybe because your cdl has a school bus endorsement. So I wonder does the state class those as the same license? The only difference I see is there is no air brakes endorsement.
  13. F40 repainting?

    I wonder would it save them money if they wrapped the trains in a livery versus painting them. You have to admit the Pace buses that had the wraps didnt look bad. On the F40C front doesnt IRM have one? Thought I saw one out there.
  14. F40 repainting?

    I couldnt help but laugh about your comments yeah it does look tacky. Maybe they are just experimenting with what looks good. They need to paint the bottom blue it would help it to look better. It needs to look more like the locos. They look better. Too much orange here not enough blue maybe make the black more on the roofline. Then it might look good
  15. F40 repainting?

    Yeah that's it
