    With the new pick I noticed that at least ten runs 808-810 with C buses filling in on the 12. 74 runs from C are 800 also starting with 801. I realize that these run numbers are not whats displayed on the the run box but what gives with these duplicates. It appears that this only in the morning rush. May some driver from either C or K can explain what actual numbers are in the box. I hope this is not a stupid question.
  2. Where is the garage being constructed in Wheeling?

    I believe they are PM pull-ins to K via Kimball-Homan

    Kimball uses artics for am and pm school trips. Some of them head downtown after one trip. A few years back artics were used on weekends until The Lincolmwood Mall management complained as I was told by a few drivers.

    Don`t know if the passenger count necessitates a 12 to 15 minute street but I could see the passengers packed if runs are missing or one falls behind schedule by even 3 minutes. I would go with increasing the frequency.
  7. Besides scheduled weekday runs from NP there also is a small hand-full of scheduled Saturday runs.
  8. Based on bus run numbers, it seemed like Yesterday July 3 would have been normal schedule with an early rush but was Sunday Holiday schedule and today July 4 its Saturday schedule. I`m confused. or mixed up. I would think this weekend would be Holiday schedule.
  9. The 50`s and 60`s signs were not that bad either. Had perfect route descriptions of the routes. The color enhancements of the above sign improves the signs I described as it clearly brings brings out the route descriptions. I still believe money could be saved if the route description was worded for all directions by beginning with (operates between via etc.) I think most passengers know which direction they want to go.

    Wondering if all these moves are permanent or will be restored back to there original garages after ridership returns to near normal.
  11. Not sure but this may have to do with CTA launching a ridership report that indicates when a bus is crowded or least busy. Maybe this translates to the bus someway. The info is on the CTA website.
  12. Someone mentioned that the running time would be comparable to Ashland and Western. He was right as its up to one hour and fifty minutes during periods of the pm rush. Wow
  13. I also noted that. I suppose we will have to wait till tomorrow
