  1. If I remember Chicago Service Lines had 3 groups of run numbers. In numerical order first group am runs, second group splits and third group pm`s not counting the extra board. The night car runs usually immediately followed the last pm. run.
  2. When I started there were no block runs and part/time runs. They were much like the trains are now.
  3. When I started CTA we did passenger counts with mostly split shifts but it paid up to 11 hours. Is it still the same on the buses?

    At present its working 56 Milwaukee.
  5. I know this is not regarding transportation but the last sentence is like a person at the cashier writing a full check holding everybody up instead of writing the amount only.
  6. I am curious myself where this schedule is found on the IRM home page.
  7. According to the current schedule Sam92 is correct.3 to 5 minutes in rush. In my opinion I think the issue is bus and rail operators not reporting to work as some operators have reported here. Lots of gaps as visualized on the tracker. Rte 82 schedules 14 buses for Saturday. Actually there were between 7 and 9 all day. Since this crazy virus that`s about standard throughout the system.

    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.
  9. Where is the garage being constructed in Wheeling?

    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.
  14. Besides scheduled weekday runs from NP there also is a small hand-full of scheduled Saturday runs.
