  1. More Bus Moves

    That's a really good question, besides the exterior difference it is in fact a difference between 7900-8324 and 8325-42. The difference is the braking which is different from the older 7900's. 7900's breaking are more sensitive and take some getting used to while 8325's are more like the new flyers articulated buses as far as breaking is concerned a great improvement of the newer Novas. I wouldn't be surprised if cta were to get more novas in the near future to replace the new flyers 1000 series. Probably half novas and half flyers.

    I honestly believe that's what's going to happen.

    I understand your point and my apologies for jumping the gun. I'm 33 and I been a member on here since I was 23 lol so now I feel old considering you're 21 👍🏽😄.

    Not gonna happen unless 3 gets more Novas from another garage. K may get their novas from Chicago or FG. I only say that because it wouldn't make sense for the operators to go through all that training only to have them get rid of the few novas 103rd have. 7903-04 are back at 77th. But I do see why you said what you said though considering K has 8342. Perhaps they'll get 8342-49.

    Lol this youngster knows what he's talking about that's for sure especially being a bus operator and knowing operators currently out of Kedzie who said they're about to start getting trained on the Nova bus.

    After all operators and mechanics over there have been trained on them 👍🏽👍🏽

    That's not going to happen. 103rd just got Novas and I mean that in a general sense. It wouldn't make sense at all for them to just give them away like that unless we got more novas from another garage as a replacement which would make more sense. I've said this a while back but with Kedzie being next to recieve Novas I think all garages will have them NP included and if that happens I think itll be more of an even spread amongst the 450 unless FG lose all their Novas for some reason which that'll be 75 per garage. Or Chicago may keep 100, 74th 90, and the other 3 would have 52 each.

    I would hope Chicago since they have the most Novas out the 5 current garages and 74th having the 2nd most. I doubt 103rd because we only have 18 of the newest and 20 total.
  9. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I hate to say it but that just might happen. I don't know why things are the way they are when it comes to cta and how FG end up with the buses they do. But I think FG will end up having all flyers the same as they had all 6400 Novas. And the 7900's they do have will get split up perhaps between 103rd and Kedzie depending on how many they're suppose to get. Or maybe all 7 garages will have Novas and will get about 60 each in the near future.

    Kedzie will be the next garage to get Novas 👍🏽.
  11. 8325-Series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I doubt that's a 7900 series but It kinda looks like the new flyer 700 series all electric xcelsior bus from here but without the green or blue color scheme they came in.

    I definitely know the difference between each bus. I was referring to the style of design as far as how they all share that window design. I was asking was it a particular name for that design or type of front end that these 3 different brands of buses share. For instance we all know what the fish bowl bus is based on how it looks but I wanted to know what's the name of this style of bus or if there's a name for it at all.
  13. 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 👍🏽👍🏽
  14. 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.

    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.
