1054-1055 will probably go back to 3 soon since 1052-53 already dipped C

That's what I'm thinking cuz 52-53 still had 3 stickers in em at K last time I seen now they back there but what was really the point of the swap in the first place

The swap was because with the summer season, 103rd didn't need as many buses with the high schools its routes served closed for summer break. Meanwhile K needed extra buses to help cover the 10 and 130 as well as summertime extended hours on the 124. Similar reasons behind a few 103rd buses being sent up to C for the summer. The buses were needed for the beefed up service on the 72, which gets extended to the beach during the summer.

No it's not random. It's an annual thing that CTA bus operations bosses plan out every summer season.

Is 4145 still in service? I came across the video of the bus being involved in the blizzard of 2011 in LSD

Yes, 4145 has not been retired due to that incident, there were other buses too involved.

Guys. There is something I've seen in the tracker oftenly. There are some buses that show SR,SH,or SS. This is an example - 6: Jackson Park Express SR -155 and a few screenshots.
1304127404_2019-09-17(3).thumb.png.c217771f38b8ec392215d4d951b4212c.png1527859544_2019-09-17(2).thumb.png.a51f80ed9e88b29420a570faf3fcc99a.png1969993643_2019-09-17(1).thumb.png.dc19160644d51033dd82a6f9bae32f25.png 

I think 8032, 8086,1704 and 1790 are all just what South Shops has on hand. 

SR is Storage Randolph where they store busses under lower Randolph

SH is Storage Halstead where the #8 stores off of Divison and Halstead 

SN is Storage Navy Pier where the 65 and 66 store their busses during the day.

The storages are to help mitigate the busses going back to their home garages during off peak times

8271 was NEVER at North Park. Route 152 is shared both by Forest Glen and North Park, and Math's thought that bus was at North Park, so that was a glitch.
