  1. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    It is indeed opening up on the 30th. Before it opens, the operators will get a tour of the north side of the terminal so we'll know where the new bus stops for all the routes that will be on that side are located 😊.
  2. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    As of right now still nothing yet. They're still training operators on the Novas we still have only 2 over here. I'm thinking they should be here time the winter pick start but hopefully sooner cause it shouldn't be that many operators who still need training.
  3. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    That's a good question I would assume a even exchange of flyers. But I'm also not ruling out the possibility of getting novas from either 74th or Chicago garage. I only say that because they have over a 100 Novas unlike 77th which only have 100, well more like 98. But as soon as I find out anything I'll give you guys a heads up 👍🏽.
  4. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    7903 and 4 are at my garage at 103rd currently being used as training buses for the operators who aren't familiar with them. We'll be getting 15-20 buses possibly 7900-19. They should be showing up with in the next few days. 😊👍🏽
  5. 2005-2009 New Flyer D40LF(Retiring)

    My question is when it's time to replace the 1000 series, what bus manufacturer will most likely get the contract? Will cta give it to New Flyer once again to replace the flyers with more flyers since the 1's we had before well currently have should I say lol.

    I agree as well. But they'll be used more than just night this is just a starting point lol. As for me I'm going to ask to drive 1 if I see some in the garage because I have a schedule where I pull out and pull in on the 28 so for that reason alone I'm going to ask for 1 and should be able to get 1.

    So will the Novas only be used for night cars or regular runs also?
  8. 3200-series - Rehabs

    That's what I want to know as well cause I haven't seen or heard of any 3200's on the orange line in neither. I also wanna know will they pair the blue 32's up with the 2600's like they do the Orange or will they run as a full set separately on the Blue Line.

    I heard it's for night car operators. But I have a hunch we'll be getting the remainder novas too only reason I say that is because after the red line terminal is finished im sure cta is gonna want new buses at the new terminal lol at least initially they will lol.
  10. More Bus Moves

    Well I think it's safe to say that 103rd will be getting Novas. I saw 7903 today in the garage as I was pulling in the mechanic said we're getting 14 of them. I'm guessing 7900-13 but don't quote me on the bus numbers I'm just going off the bus I saw at the garage.

    Hey im just a messenger like I said this is what I heard. Even if that operator got attacked with tequilas on the halsted route the Novas still have a better shield than the flyers and trust me I know both buses still don't provide the best protection.
  12. More Bus Moves

    I heard this from another operator but the word is 103rd might get at least 10 novas. Mainly for Operators who do night cars. That's probably due to the recent assaults that happened to the last 2 drivers who are both from 103rd. But well see if that come to pass.

    That's so dope man. I'm actually happy to see 3200's on a different line besides the Orange and Brown line. They look so cool on the Blue too 👍🏽👍🏽😁😁
  14. CTA 'L' Rosters

    The fact that the 3200's are heading to the Blue Line is awesome to me. Will all of them make it or just a few?
