  1. The 395 used to be a S and SW split. Is the 395 still split, operated only by S, or unseemingly operated by W?
  2. Maybe they felt running trains from Pulasi to Western (5 stations) wasn't worth it, considering that the 21 runs parallel with the Pink Line. That bus route isn't going past Western either, so just eliminate the duplication . Besides, who will pay $2.75 to ride a train when the parallel bus route is FREE?
  3. Sad when ANY BUS crashes into a building.
  4. I don't think they drove through Minneapolis or St Paul either. I'm pretty sure they used the I- 694 bypass which runs north of both cities. It's actually a little faster than going through the Cities.
  5. Good question. I would imagine the 6 running to 47th, if at all. The 8 and 9 could run in 2 sections, from 47th south and from Fullerton north. I would run the 3 and the 4 as an interline. NB 3s become SB 4s and NB 4s become SB 3s. Considering 47th is a mess, are they turning buses at 51st? Yesterday the exit ramps to 87th and Garfield were backlogged onto the Dan Ryan. Exits to Canalport, Roosevelt, and Congress (Ida B. Wells) were closed. Quick rant. How come Welks wasn't renamed Ida B. Wells? Now we have an intersection of Ida B. Wells and Wells. The 28 already ends at 47th and the 15 can handle Jeffery without the J14. I do think there will be a lot of pressure on East West bus routes, especially those that connect to rail service from 47th south and Fullerton north. I would also assume Brown Line trains are running shuttles between Kimball and Belmont. Are Orange Line trains only running between Midway and Western? How about Pink Line trains between 54/Cermak and Western? I'm guessing Green Line trains run Express from 47th to California? Blue Line trains running Express between California and Western Forest Park branch? I'm sure Red Line will run Express from 47th to Fullerton. Will some dummy attempt to pull the cherry in the downtown zone? With CTA suspended all service again for lockdown (curfew)?
  6. As of 630P, add Pace to the suspended service list.
  7. My understanding is that CTA AND METRA Canceled rail service.
  8. Eventually the leas less experienced drivers will have to drive those buses. The new buses don't stay new forever. The Axxess buses were once new. The NABIs were once new. Again, in a hor say, there's no excuse to have HOT buses on the streets while buses with good a/c sit in the garage only because they are new.
  9. No other model has been subjected to this. My first Axxess ride was in a Saturday morning on a brand new 6337.
  10. Why aren't these new New Flyers not running today? Eldorado Axxess buses 6323 and 6339 are sweat boxes. I see NABI buses out but not the newbies? CTAbuses have good a/c. What's the purpose of buying new buses if they are going to sit idle at the garage?
  11. 4087 has a 3 sticker but I am currently riding it on the 20 Madison.
  12. Article dated February 2020
  13. If you mean letters like FS, J, and L, LA, those are I believe commuter lines for AC Transit. VanHool models are A first Teansit, CX and TX for motorcoaches. The TDX is the double decker motorcoach. Alexander Dennis builds the double decker transit buses. ABC Companies sells new VanHool abd Alexander Dennis products in the U.S.
