Yes is there a problem?

I just think you should appreciate these Novas more that's all.  They're the most unique in the CTA system.  Yeah they're getting old and it's time for their retirement but appreciate that they're still here while they last.  

Forest Glen has been doing their best at maintaining them.  I was on the 81 the other day and there were 2 buses; a new Nova and an old Nova, which came 2nd.  I boarded the old one.  I saw that a person in a wheelchair waited for the old one because the ramp on the newer Nova was not working.  

Some of these 2nd gens still run pretty well and that's why CTA has not fully replaced them yet.  They're still being put into good use.

People always wanna talk about "the new stuff is always better".  Not always.  Nothing is perfect.

I think #4391 just ran over the divvy bike display on Adams right in front of the willis tower. The rack is all messed up 2 cta supervisors are here and the operator is sitting on the bus in the passenger seat.

Today is not CTA’s day 🤣🤣 first brown line train slams into a purple line train and then a flyer slams into a divvy bike display🤣 what’s next

Another 10-72 cause people don't know better about tracks.

Red line was rerouted onto the loop today due to a suspected hazmat situation at Grand. There ended up being no threat but still a disruption.

Actually 2nd thought.... @Mr.NewFlyer1051 will be called "irrelevant" by a Forest Glen driver who says he doesn't know him.  Right after he told everyone on the forums that he knows every single driver out of FG!

A CTA 4300 series Arctic crashed into a tree while on the 147 this afternoon, unknown the number bus.

It was 4363, according to this CBS news video.

It's not clear how the accident happened, as the bus is facing the wrong way.

Driver suffered a medical emergency before coming onto the southbound lanes 

I was wondering if that was the case, based on the bus crossing the median. ABC7 has the confirmation.
