  1. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Only new buses 103rd got since 2012 were the 4300 artics. This the 1st time in a long time since 103rd had new 40fters. In all honesty FG still have more new buses than old Novas and even if they do get the 8325's, they will still have old Novas left to replace. Historically FG gets the older buses I agree that's why I said they may get 103rd flyers if we get the 83's. But we need them more than FG. The Glen is a way more relaxed garage than 103rd route wise. I believe well get 7901-10 and then the 8325's (35) buses. I really dont see 77th in the mix.
  2. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    103rd suppose to be getting 35 Novas so dont be surprised If you see the newest Novas on 1 of our routes. Like I said before I could be wrong but the fact we went from 12 at 1 point to 35 lets me know that they won't be used just for night cars as previously said. Probably within the next 2weeks or less we'll find out.
  3. Flxible Metro B and E Garage Assignment

    That was a retired 5300 unless cpd have 2 flixibles.
  4. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Still a 7 sticker on it but I'm sure it'll have a 3 soon.
  5. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    7904 has a 103rd (3) garage sticker on it so it's more than likely well get 7901-7920ish. But I'll remain hopeful 8325-49 will still come to 103rd or If not FG. I really dont see 77th getting them cause they dont need them at all. The sooner the new novas are ready to go the sooner well find out what's going where lol.
  6. A 2006 D40LF with A different Sign

    Probably 1249 was it a 8 Halsted bus?
  7. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Yea they will, eventually the 29 will be relocated to its original spot once the terminal is fully completed. They told us this while they were showing operators the north terminal before it opened.
  8. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    If I was to take a guess as to where the 8325's are going this is where I would guess and my reasons why. My 1st guess would be 103rd while sending 25 new flyers (1034-58 25 buses total) to FG to rid of some 6400's. 103rd in all honesty could use them more than fg considering we have more rougher routes than FG and I also know they won't be used just for night cars. 2nd guess is 77th since historically they seem to always get new equipment 1st and would send 7901-02 and 05-25 over to 103rd. My 3rd guess is FG get the new Novas which would get rid of some of the old novas. Either way FG is getting more buses sent their way to get rid of those 6400's.
  9. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    This was earlier during morning rush hr when I saw both 7903 and 04 but your right now it's just 03 out there on the 28.
  10. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Both 7903 and 04 are on route 28 this morning according to bus tracker.
  11. More Bus Moves

    I seen that same bus on bus tracker lol I'm excited about this lol I cant wait for the rest of the Novas to get to my garage. If anybody else spot them please take pics if possible 😊👍🏽
  12. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I drove past 77th garage to see the new novas for myself. I wonder if the new novas have hopper windows just in the back and front cause my concern as a operator is what happens when or if the ac goes out on the bus and is hot or vise versa if it's cold on the bus in the winter time. Of course we have procedures to follow incase of that event but I dont think it was smart of cta to not have hopper windows on these buses. But either way I'm excited about new equipment even if they're not coming to my garage lol. Nova training is just about finished so I presume well see them soon out of 103rd.
  13. 95th Red Line Station Rebuild

    Update the official opening is Fri Jan 4th.
  14. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Me personally I think they are coming to 103rd but that's also wishful thinking for me too lol. But I wouldn't rule out 77th getting them. Historically speaking 77th seem to have always got the new toys 1st so we'll have to wait and see but I would definitely be nice if my garage got them 1st 😊👍🏽.
  15. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    Great eye for catching that because subconsciously I knew it was something else different about this bus but I just couldn't put my finger on it lol.
  16. 7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

    I asked a instructor about the remaining Operators who still need training for the Novas and she said they're just about done with training. Trust me I'll be sure to let you guys know about them cause as a operator and bus fan I been asking about them too cause I want to drive them again. I'll probably 1 of the 1st Operators out of 103rd to drive them lol. But they should be ready to go soon 👍🏽😊.
  17. 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 😊.
  18. 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.
  19. 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 👍🏽.
  20. 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. 😊👍🏽
  21. More Bus Moves

    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.
  22. More Bus Moves

    So will the Novas only be used for night cars or regular runs also?
  23. 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.
  24. More Bus Moves

    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.
