I saw this tweet on Twitter a while back. 700 was on the road when it had that fire. It was on the 52. 701 is usually on 79-714 during the morning time and 79-766 during the evenings. The block n

Whether it's Arizona or the Midwest, 90-plus temps is still hot and just as uncomfortable for any transit customer. So his point is still valid. 

This is first accident i've ever been on and the bus itself from my initial thoughts while on-board took some major damage but after getting off and seeing the aftermath I was surprised to say the lea

#4069 brokedown at Ford City tonight #1321 brokedown just east of 79th and Stony Island.

Dang I saw 4069 yesterday morning not thinking it was gonna break down. And 1321 wow that bus hasn't been out for even 2 weeks after being released from the boneyard and already broke. Both buses were recently in the shops too as you mentioned.  Also, I saw tow truck #250 going north on Michigan yesterday from the south side around Washington probably going to tow another broken bus. That's a lot of broken down buses yesterday

Yesterday I was riding 8285 on the 78 and while we was going southbound on Elston, I heard a warning alarm coming from the front of the bus that sounded like there was an issue with the bus. The bus driver continued driving until he pulled over on Montrose & Springfield. The driver got out his cell phone and then exited his cab area of the bus. He said 8285 might be broken so he had to call in control. About 3 minutes later, he finished the call and control said the bus was okay to move again. The bus didn’t have any problems after that but I got off a few blocks later at Kimball.

I think it has a oil leak or some cux I know it has to have fresh gas in it as much as I know it gets used & normal it a just be blue smoke for like 15-20 mins that a burn off while still at the garage cuz they let em run there before they go out which all garages do

Hopefully they'll fix that so blue smoke won't emit again
