  1. 603 was on the 816 last Friday but finished early at 3:50pm
  2. Yes. See https://www.wired.co.uk/article/shenzhen-electric-buses-public-transport
  3. The first working (66-805) tracks from 5:40am to 9:30am (600 yesterday, 603 today). The last journey (I assume from Navy Pier) was on 65 tracking from 9:10 The second working (66-816) tracks all day from 7:40am to 5:30pm (605 yesterday, 600 is out now today)
  4. Certificate has been renewed and Jacob has added the 600 series to the bus tracker. The addition is retroactive so you can see data from when they first started operating on 3/23.
  5. 8327 has not tracked since 11/11/2019
  6. They have 6 buses at South 20500-20505
  7. OK thanks. I found out it was a mistake in how I was looking at the data from bustracker!
  8. Anyone have an idea of why 1227 to 1235 always seem to move from either 103rd or Kedzie (1230/1/5) for the last few days of each month? They always move back the first day of the next month. This has happened since Sep-2020. 1227-1229, 1232-1234 moved from 77th to 103rd that month. 1230/1/5 moved to Kedzie earlier in 2020. Something to do with servicing artics at the end of the month?
  9. The picture appears to be outside the Complete Coach Works (CCW) base in California. Indianapolis has had some CCW rebuilt Gilligs for a few years. They are 40'. The TriMet might be the first 60' conversion.
  10. Perhaps "buffet" was the wrong description - they were bar cars. They were withdrawn in the early 2000s They were not the only ones. Milwaukee North (6-cars) & West (2-cars) and Rock Island (4-cars) also had some 7300s converted as bar cars which ran until 29 August 2008 (7300-7310 and 7313).

  11. Yes. These were the two "buffet" cars used on the UP-NW line on the 5:16pm to Harvard. The door area was replaced with a bar and access tp the car was only from adjacent cars.
  12. You are correct, they are 40' buses. All Pace MCI buses are D4000CT
  13. At that time this would have been the bus services operated by United Bus based in Des Plaines which became Nortran and is now Pace Northwest Division. Before the extension of the Blue Line to O'Hare nearly all Pace routes ending at Rosemont and Harlem would have run through to Jefferson Park, including 1 Jefferson Park-Des Plaines - operated primarily via Northwest Highway, during rush hours only. All day service was provided by route #61, operating into downtown Chicago. 21 operated west of Jefferson Park via Higgins Rd, Cumberland, Devon, Higgins, Mannheim and Touhy to just w
  14. OK looks like the Certificate expired last night.
  15. It is back up from 2:30pm.
