    Not really. 69th was taking care of 38 Michigan Express, not 77th, & initially I only saw 4000 Series M-A-N Americanas. Later on I began seeing 4400 Series RTSs, then 6000 Series Flxies, all in the mix. In 1996, 69th Garage was replaced by 74th.

    Actually, sometime after the Orange Line began service, the artics were moved from Archer to Chicago for the 23 Washington Express, which was operating as a west side alternative for the Lake Street leg of the Green Line. After the Green Line reopened, 23 Washington Express was discontinued, & the artics were then moved from Chicago to North Park, & then later, from North Park to 103rd.
  3. Just my personal preference: I would prefer more Novas, both 40' & 60'.
  4. Exactly what I'm thinking.

    I saw an 82xx on 94 South California this afternoon.
  6. My mistake. Artics of other TAs, including NYMTA & LACMTA, & even some in Seattle, have 3 doors.
  7. No. Our artics only have 2 doors.
  8. I really think that CTA's next order of artics should feature 3 doors instead of 2. CTA is already behind in the times in that area.
  9. That idea's been on my mind ever since the 1st time I've heard of CCW. & I totally agree. CTA should look at this option. It would save them a real good chunk.
  10. I used to ride those cars in that video when I was stationed in Japan.
  11. Yes, & I would love to see more 3200s on the Blue Line!
  12. Meaning CTA's gonna get another round of Novas?

    Spotted 8086 (one of 74th's buses) on Route #2, along with 1704 (NP).
  15. I kinda like these. These are, in my mind, high-floor Novas.
  16. I also use Ride Chicago for Android.

    Understood, but I thought 77 was going all Nova with the 7900 Series Novas.
