  1. Niles Free Bus

    Niles Free Bus appears to be re-branding their bus fleet. I saw a number of their buses at Golf Mill today in this new scheme as shown on 2646. Also, had something strange happen to me at Golf Mill. A Pace Supervisor from NW came up to me and said that a driver had called and reported that I was taking photos of their buses. I told him that I have been taking bus photos for close to 50 years. He told me that if I want to take photos of Pace buses I need to get permission from Pace because of the "problems" that have been occurring. Since I was on Mall property, I did not want to get into a long drawn-out argument with him, and said I was leaving. If I had been on a public street, I would have stood my ground. .

If you wish to ride the first 4 trips on the 4000's or 8499, you will need to get a special ticket from the Community Service bus that will be at Daley Plaza. The CTA will begin handing out the tickets beginning at 0930; one per customer. More information can be found on the CTA website.

    That picture is not a bathroom door. It is a door to enter the cab, which is located on the upper deck of the cab car. The bathroom is on the lower level.
