  1. 5000-series - Updates

    The odd numbered car is the lower numbered car. So 5148 would be paired with 5147.
  2. Up to 45 Electric Buses

    My understanding is that the order is for 45 Proterras. Hat means nearly half will go to C and the rest to 74th. Most likely the routes they will run will be 63 63rd and 66 Chicago.
  3. New Eldorados?

    The BRT version comes in 32ft and 35ft models.
  4. 2600-series - Service Dates

    Yes it is the air conditioner. The noise you hear is the condenser motor.
  5. More Bus Moves

    IRS best to keep 6409s on short and light routes and if necessary rush hour trips.
  6. Random CTA

    When Archer closed, the 35 and 39 were assigned to 77th. The thinking then was driver reliefs at the Six 35th Red Line station. I believe the reasons for switching to K were twofold. First, the extension of the 35 to Cicero made deadheads very long and secondly, K provides a direct driver relief for both routes at Kedzie on their respective routes. 77th drivers had to bus or walk to the Red Line and ride the train to 35th.
  7. What's Left for Pace's NABI LFW 6162s/ 6600s?

  8. Random CTA

    When did that change? Initially it came out of 77th as the two buses used for the route came from the a.m runs of the 1 Bronzeville/Union.. Perhaps the thinking now is that 35 and 39 come from K, why not the 31? Maybe the 31 could interline with the 35.
  9. Bringing Back a Route and/or Segment

    The X54 use to go Jeff Pk. How did that routing go?
  10. CDL Training

    The other thing is that those applying for licenses to drive for school buses have to submit to background checks including fingerprints. IIRC, any CDL driver that operates a charter for a school in Illinois must go through this process.
  11. More Bus Moves

    Who said K was getting Novas? Based on one bus spotted at that garage?
  12. Pace 35th Anniversary Legacy Fleet

    Interesting that Pace Northwest and Southwest chose to wrap a 30' bus instead of a 40'. Maybe Pace West will wrap a NABI?
  13. Pace New Flyer buses

    And I forgot to mention year round bad suspensions.
  14. Pace New Flyer buses

    I guess we have to suffer one more summer with NABI buses with no a/c and one more winter with no heat.
  15. Pace 35th Anniversary Legacy Fleet

    Looking forward to Pace South, SW, West and NW wraps. Sad that the RTA wrap is way out in No Man's Land!
