  1. Why are you guys talking about a bus slow zone on the 7000 series forum?
  2. Why not? They’re going out of business too??
  3. I’ll most likely be doing this new 94 route lol it’s1 of the reasons I came back to 74th 😊👍🏽.
  4. No updated news on the 7000’s yet huh?

    I’ve noticed a few bus moves as of lately. A few of 77th 1200’s have migrated to 103rd. It may be more but I seen with my own eyes 1204, 05, 09, 1213 and 1215 too I believe. 103rd also have Artics from NP 4069, and 4118 I don’t know what’s that about but I know I saw 4110, 4194, and 4196 at 77 as well. Probably a even swap between 103rd and 77th. But NP is a mystery lol.

    I saw 1204 inside of 103rd as I was pulling in last night. I’m not yet sure if that bus is a loaner or not of if it’s more but I do know that 77th has 4194 and 4196. I’ll keep an eye out for more possible changes.

    I do the J14 and personally I think this route could use 40fters only cause the ridership on this route has dipped drastically and it's no need for this route to still have all these artics on it.

    The 1000 New Flyers will definitely be here for at least another 6yrs and given the total amount of them I wont be surprised if they around longer than that as far as retirement goes. I just hope the flyers are replaced with newer flyers instead of Novas.

    77th used to have artics regularly as recently as 6yrs ago. But they could use artics on the 2 for sure cause on a regular day that bus be packed. 79 is definitely a route that could use them regularly too as you can see even during these times that route still have a bus full of people. Honestly they could use them for the 3 and 4 as well once things get back to normal. 77th is spoiled tho cause they always get new buses 1st but also when they had artics the operators at the time complained about them on certain routes and had the artics moved from 77th to 103rd in 2013-14. If anybody remember they had the 4333's and up after the Red Line was finished and those buses were used on 79th then. Afterwards those buses were moved to now NP and 77th got 4172-96 but those eventually moved to 103rd to where they are currently. So yea they need artics for that route now and even when things clear up outside in my opinion.
  13. I agree with all you said. I've heard rumors from other operators that cta is going with Novas for the next order but I hope they're wrong about it cause I personally want more flyers but I can see why especially with Pace going with flyers which is a surprise to see them flyers in pace livery. It seems like cta and pace never have the same buses so I can see cta going with nova to differentiate from Pace and 2 because perhaps Nova have the cheaper price. But if cta went with Eldorado that would be a big surprise and I would be cool with them as well. Can't wait to find out what happens. Until then I'll just continue to appreciate the flyers we have now cause they have about a good 6yrs left before they're gone. But hopefully they'll be replaced with the same company the same as the 6400 Novas are.

    Oh ok I know at 103rd we had some for a fallback for the 71st st route.

    The 6400's are sent to other garages are used for fallback shelters for operators since a lot of stores and restaurants are closed due to this stupid man made virus.
