Lol this youngster knows what he's talking about that's for sure especially  being a bus operator and knowing operators currently out of Kedzie who said they're about to start getting trained on the Nova bus.

I'm not talking about you i'm talking about the youngsters that are constantly over sharing everything that think could possibly be going on within the system as a whole. Its great to see Kedzie being next in line for novas but I was speaking on a broader point outside of this.

You wanna talk about 'youngsters' but then again, you are YoungBusLover....  lol

Seriously though, I don't see how things are being "overshared" here.  Kedzie getting Novas seems like rare news to me because I never thought K even needed Novas.  They're fine with the D40LFs they got.  In my POV, since now Kedzie runs the 21, I have not seen a Nova on the 21 ever since Archer Garage's final days.   

Idk if Kedzie has ever had Novas but yeah.  It seems fair if all garages have about the same mix of buses.

Speculation and guesswork is at least 1/3rd of this forum. Also, it feels like "youngsters" is being used as a pejorative. Notice we aren't throwing around "oldhead" or "boomer". I'm happy to be wrong, however.

Kedzie hasn't had Novas. I like the even mix thing as well, my concern is just where they're coming from. I'd hate to see them come from FG or 103rd, not only because of the reaction of this forum, but it would be unusual to see not-even-6 month old buses be shuffled around like that.

Kedzie is the next garage to get novas this has been discussed before and 8342 is there to train operators first

Mr.cta85 is the first and only one on the board to actually cite a source. Until then, I was skeptical too.

Yeah a name I made when I was young in my teenage years a long time ago but that's nor here or there. When I mean over shared info I'm referring to useless stuff that to me isn't relevant. I've stayed quiet about it up to this point but I'd rather be informed on major changes going on throughout the system rather than seeing random posts about one or two buses moving for a day then to be informed of them returning back to there home garage the,next day or later in the week. Not to rub anyone the wrong way about it just saying keep things relevant and not over speculate things that aren't major.

I'm 21 but I have an old school vibe to my personality and pov of things but in terms of kedzie possibly getting novas that will be interesting to see which garage or garages will be giving up there's in exhange for NFs.

I'm 20 (first time I've typed that since my birthday, wow), can I join the crowd? xD

 

That aside, I'm remembering that 8342 is at Kedzie for training, but they're presumably getting lower series novas? Why not use 7901-7904 as the training bus instead? Or are the differences between 7900-8324 and 8325-8349 cosmetic only?

If you feel someone is oversharing, take that up with them directly. Your message would have been a lot clearer than the comment you made about "youngsters"; a group which you then tried to exclude yourself from. Someone's perceived age is much less "relevant" than information on temporary bus moves could possibly be.

That's a really good question,  besides the exterior difference it is in fact a difference between 7900-8324 and 8325-42. The difference is the braking which is different from the older 7900's. 7900's breaking are more sensitive and take some getting used to while 8325's are more like the new flyers articulated buses as far as breaking is concerned a great improvement of the newer Novas. I wouldn't be surprised if cta were to get more novas in the near future to replace the new flyers 1000 series. Probably half novas and half flyers.

Wow, that is significant. The leading assumption now becomes that if 8342 is the training bus, they'll be coming from 3 or FG, because (and I'm not a bus driver, so several grains of salt) why train on 1 type of bus just to utilize another? I might have phrased that wrong.

Interesting about novas at kedzie. I was told they couldnt fit through the wash rack there. That's why they have never had any. Could be cta wants to put a few new buses at each garage so the mechanics and operators can get familiar with the buses. Probably if kedzie did get novas it might get a few new 8325s but would have to get a majority of 7900s. Maybe 3-6 new buses at a garage could be a reality.
