Bus heading to 7 brokedown on the Dan rayn near 18th I believe it was 1271 or 1221 either one of the numbers seen it while I was shooting my car video for YouTube

That’s 21 Cermak bus the 21 doesn’t operate out of 7 so 1221 and 1227 are not on 21 they are out on 4

I seen #6066 being towed years ago. What they do is remove the rack to access the towing points. The rack is put in the bus for transport and the bus is towed away once strapped down.

Well this was nuts to say the least. #1100 was the bus involved from what I could see in the news report in this wild accident glad everyone didn't suffer any major injuries. Winter is here in full effect.

1868 was probably broken down on Harlem, it seemed the engine was off and the hazards are on, why is an NP bus up north on Harlem Ave? I was riding 6686 at the time so I can't confirm if the engine was off or on. Also, 1759 was at Harlem Green Line last weekend and it wouldn't start up so we had to wait for 8236 to take us to Blue Line.

#6679 was dead at milwaukee/addison tonight. The 992 was revving the engine on the bus to get it going. They had brought a new nova for the operator. I had a smile on my face thinking that it might be a broke down old bus but it's got good ac. Better than the new nova anyway. If it was hot I would have told the supervisor can I keep the old bus? Just joking. 😆

Its funny you mention that because this was my sight to see during my last trip last night. It seems like every other week i've seen #7900's breaking down on the Hyde Park Express.

I was gonna get 1401 on the 22 today but it broke down about 9 minutes before my stop, it was at 10 minutes when I first checked then it said 9 minutes about 6 minutes later. Then it said delayed and the bus behind was 1862 and I rode 1862. 1401 isn't on the tracker anymore so I'm guessing it broke down. I think it broke down on Clark and Wisconsin.
