  1. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    That's a good question that I wonder too. If I was to take a stab at it I'd say the moves were based on the decisions of general managers of each garage or perhaps made by people in higher positions. I'll try to find out by asking around 👍🏽👍🏽
  2. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I believe so too but we'll see. I think it would be cool if Chicago and 74th Could send some to 103rd as well since they're both over 100 Novas. Share the wealth lol. The spring pick for the bus side goes in effect March 31st keep your eyes open for more potential bus moves.
  3. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    8339 is finally in service as a 95. I not sure I've ever seen that bus in service before and to be honest I never seen it in the garage neither. Either way it's good to see it finally.
  4. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    7904 is back in service currently as a 95. That bus was M.i.a for a while so it's good to see it again.
  5. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Hey did you happen by any chance to see 8339 as well? That's another bus that hasn't been seen in a while as well.
  6. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    7904 has been M.I.A for some time now. I haven't seen it in the garage or nothing. I'll check 77th to see if it's on the fence or perhaps returned to 77th I'm not sure.
  7. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    A training bus for who? He's right they're the same as 7900's for the exception of the tinted hopperless window and the interior like he described 👍🏼. My guess it's still at 77th but not as s training bus probably still getting programmed then afterwards then sent to FG and their mechanics can handle it from there.
  8. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    It's a chance they could go anywhere but they'll be at 103rd for the time being.
  9. CTA Bus Garage Rosters

    1026-27 are both at 74th, They been there since late 2017.
  10. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I agree with back and forth but not the belittling. I have the upmost respect for Bus Hunter, 5750 and every 1 on this page despite our differences of opinions I would never belittle no one 😊👍🏽. But I hear you tho and agree.
  11. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I've noticed that the 8325's are mostly spent on the 95, 119, and 71. With a sprinkle of 28,15, and 106 lol.
  12. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Lol I agree 77th is worse than 103rd lol the 3, 4 and 79th alone are the reasons I stayed away from that garage myself and I was born and raised around those very routes lol. We have our routes too lol. Ever heard of the 34, 119, 71, 103, 15 or 95?? Just to name a few and no you did NOT throw in that coffee incident to prove how "Rough" FG is 🤣🤣🤣👍🏽. If you read my previous post I already told you i drove up north before and i know people outta both FG and NP also. And need I remind YOU I never disagree with how busy that treacherous 77 is lol. Busy and dangerous are 2 different things lol. 95th terminal is new but with the same old things that happens there too as far as people are concerned wait till summer time lol. I'll even argue that 103rd is just as rough as 77th and 74th if I were to be honest. I've seen crazy stuff happen at 103rd than I have at 74th.
  13. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Exactly lol. But 74th should have 112 that's including 8212-23 👍🏽.
  14. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    😄😄😄 YOU'RE the 1 who said you dont ride public transit not me. And me being an operator have nothing to do with me automatically being right or better than anyone! But as a operator I have different perspective and experience of each side of town having drove on both sides might I add. He had 8yrs I have 7 so I'd say we're neck and neck lol. I'm also not catering to the south side I'm just telling it like it is as well sir. Do you know why or how many operators who stay either south side or southern suburbs travel past 6 other garages just to go to Forest Glen? Its because of the peace of mind they have at that garage because they dont have to deal with the foolishness that we do out south and west. They call FG the Counrty Club for a reason and it's not because of no new buses lol.
  15. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    The low 7900's that went back to 77th is not even true lol. 1st its only 2 buses we got from 77th which are 7903-04. Which are both at 103rd. All garages have rehabbed 1000 series so I don't see the unfairness there neither unless you wanna mention them having the oldest nf but so does my garage but still irrelevant cause they're all rehabbed. I was the 1 who said FG might lose their Novas in exchange for flyers but that doesn't mean it's going to happen lol. I have my reasons as to why I said it but I wont speak on it to just to avoid the back and forth. But currently as I said more than a few times at this point, FG still has 89 new novas so why are you guys still upset? I get the 6400's are still there but they're also on the way out. It's a reason FG have the fleet they have. You a former Operator I'm assuming from that garage so you know just as well as I do how different things are from the North and South side of the city. Kedzie and NP dont have Novas at all but you dont hear anybody on their behalf upset like you and Bus Hunter. Bus Hunter dont even ride public transit so I definitely dont see his reasons lol. He mad about the "lack of new buses" when he riding past people at the bus stop in his personal vehicle 🤔🤔😄😄 come on. Its Novas all across the city now. I feel all garages should get 60 a piece but since that's not the case as of yet FG still have 89 in comparison to our lil 20 so yea.
