Why do CTA make garages switch buses for the same bus model like kedize swapped it's 11'&12' with 7 & 03 for 16'17& 18 like why not swap for different models

Understood, but I thought 77 was going all Nova with the 7900 Series Novas.

Cermak (22nd Street) was originally #22 in the original scheme. 21 was Fulton/21st. Clark/Wentworth was Thru-Route 22, which was a different series, and local Clark and Wentworth cars were considered 2, This was soon seen as a problem. So Cermak became 21, Clark/Wentworth kept 22, and Fulton/21st was renumbered 15, which had been its old Thru-route number. This is also why Canal-Wacker bus became 15, as it partially replced the Fulton/21st carline.

Now that I think about it, what is the purpose of the 10 going all the way to water tower and not just Og/Union? Who is it serving by going all the way up there, especially when there is existing, competing service that's almost, if not more frequent (146/147/151, maybe the 3)?

A lot of tourists stay on the Mag Mile and the Museum is a tourist destination.

Due to service tweaks, some of the 1050s may be making their way from 103rd to K. 1052 is currently on the #126.

No changes to the Nova assignments at this time.
