Dam I was hoping FG keep the 82's which they had to start with & just sent the 80's packing since 6 got all of the 15's that FG had after the 82's was stolen from them

I'd rather have FG send those #6400's back to 77th just for the hell of it so we can run them into the ground to retirement.

It's getting close to that time for CTA on whether or not they want to consider rehabbing some of these #7900's and #8000's because they are in the worse shape out of the entire fleet. Every time I ride an #8000 series out of 74th the engines sound worn out and the transmissions seem shot along with minimal a/c other than the very few #8200's they have, those run like a dream but meanwhile when I operate #7900's out of 77th its a mixed bag of buses that have good a/c, but bad brakes, or good brakes but a shot transmission and sometimes a good bus overall until it decides it doesn't want to go into gear. These buses rattle and shake so much that the interior panels are falling apart mid route or during a pull in trip and those silver bike racks are just terrible and fragile overall.

It's getting close to that point, I think once the Electric bus projects are finally finished the next phase of business will have to be rehabs for the #7900s. Now will they go the #1000s route and receive something around 2022? or will they go the #5300s and #6400s route and receive nothing but minor touch ups every other year? All I know is you shouldn't need duck tape for a six year to seven year old bus such as #7916.
