NEW CTA Audio?

Recommended Posts

I don't think I would expect the Yellow Line, since it doesn't get within 9 miles of the Loop.

I said that only as an cauton to new readers that are getting to know CTA operations

Also another interesting fact is that on most of the lines the CTA man would do this during announcements Next is Kedzie (Then in prerecorded voice which sounds louder and deeper "doors open on the right) at Kedzie..........this i guess is to help the confusion of new and visiting riders traveling the CTA but also to correct the mistakes of the past of not adding just this little feature to enhance rider awareness. I tried to get audio for the Yellow Line but the operator seemed that just because it was Sunday that it wasn't ok to play the recorded information to passengers on the trip to and from Skokie.........shame i was kind of disappointed but next time i will get that audio for the yellow line.

The "doors open on the right" (or left) has always been standard operating procedure for Mr. CTA, unless the train could use platforms on either side (such as at Howard or Linden). Usually at the beginning of the run, it would say "In the direction of travel, doors open on the left at Central" (e.g.).

One would think that the description would be an ADA requirement for the blind.

BTW, you didn't get the point of my last post.

There is a new 'Attention customers, and inbound/outbound train from the Loop will be arriving shortly" announcement at the Roosevelt Green/Orange station. It is a different lady from the rest of the stations, and certainly not the crabby sounding lady.

The CTA lady is a special feature on the Green Line that was a test pilot but has seem to become a Green Line feature but please note that this announcment is not featured on the Wabash or Lake legs of the Green between Roosevelt/Wabash (Red Orange Green Line transfer) and the Ashland/Lake (Green Pink Line transfer)

OK......................... i have exciting news, i have recorded new audio from the CTA Brown, Red, Pink,Green and Blue Lines and hope to upload them asap. I've noticed a couple of things, the Library State Van Buran Stop is now called the Harold Library State Van Buran

The Harold library stop signs have been up about a month, but when I passed through there the onboard train announcement still said library-State and Van Buren and made no reference to Harold. Didn't see anything on the car cards either to reflect that. At least the red line car cards do reflect that Cermak-Chinatown is now handicapped accessible. So I guess the other one is a work in progress.

The CTA Tattler seems to have a more intelligible explanation of this

Also, the explanation sounds related to the complaint posted here a bit back that the message wasn't saying "right."

thank for that artcle it is everything that i have addressed. the audio will be posted up next week as i am still doing edits on the audio and the washington harold library announcement is featured on the pink line and it sounds more intune with the station that it is serving but it took the CTA a loooooong time to get the library/state/van buren announcement together period

Don't know if anyone has noticed but the standard "this is a **** Line train to Downtown" has been edited as well. On the Brown Line, it now says, "This is a Brown Line train to the loop".

yes ive notice that on all lines they say "loop" but interesting the blue line intro from ohare stills says to downtown and forest park and the red line intro says to downtown and 95 (note they dont say dan ryan why not lets be correct cta) the reason why they do that is because they go through downtown/loop and the brown pink orange purple line express actually terminating (the continue and do not layover on the loop only at their respected terminals) at the loop

Also, technically speaking the Red and Blue don't go on the Loop, and the current name for the station at the end of the line is 95th, at least since they changed the roll signs.

Not much has been said about Rail Announcements on here anymore.  However, I have something for all of you.  Here is the WHOLE program for the Red Line to Ashland/63.   I hope you all enjoy.
