CTA Bus Garage Rosters

What change?

There was no change from my last update from him on 4/19/14(Saturday). The only changes with the artics is he broke up 4000-4149 and 4150-4207 as the first was part of a Seattle order and the latter was the Stimulus order. Not really a roster change from four days ago, just a separation of artics that were ordered in 2008-2009. There was a change on Saturday, yes... but he has his latest roster dated 4/22/14(Tuesday), and it matches the rosters I updated on Saturday here, here and here

My rosters match his and I haven't changed one bus today.

When you first asked what change, his update was still dated 4/19/14 so I took your question to mean you missed that he updated based on the last observable changes from Saturday. As for what came after, he already explained to you his cleaning up his lists and making them a bit more clearer than they already were. And since it's not my list, you can nitpick with him why he chose to regroup things the way he did.

I changed the rosters due to Jajuan's observation. A change in how something is grouped is a change in roster in my opinion. I gave the stimulus artics it's own designation because they were not ordered/received with the others and that's how I prefer to group it.

Understandable, BusHunter. I just spent several minutes going through each roster of buses for each garage and seeing everything matched and thinking "What???" :huh: . Anyhow, it's been explained...

Just a couple of quick roster tweaks for you, BH.

1) 4050 is operating out of Kedzie now rather than North Park.

2) 4118 is still assigned to NP, out of sequence. I've spotted it several times in recent days. Still displaying the "P" windshield sticker, I sort of doubt that it was ever moved.

Roster updated. #7900 is now at 77th.

You can't always go by the sticker, wordguy. I've seen Novas transferred from 77th to FG that still have the "7" sticker on them. The garages are sometimes slow on changing them.

That may be so, but in this case he is correct that 4118 is still assigned to NP. I spotted it myself as well as rode it on several NP routes in recent days.

Personally, I would tend to go by the run sign rather than a window decal, but that's just me.

It wouldn't mean much if the bus is a loaner since run numbers tell you the operator is from a particular garage but don't necessarily tell you that the bus is.

Roster at North Park shows 1305 is back in service. Is this the case? It's also on the Not In Service roster too.

Looking at 77th Garage under "Garages", I noticed that 77th still shows, 6400 Series Nova LFS and 4300 Series New Flyer D60LFR/DE60LFR. Those need to be eliminated from the 77th roster because that garage no longer has those. It actually has New Flyer DE60LF.

Look at my rosters(links to the links here) here or BusHunter's rosters here. You might be looking at an older roster because the latest ones we both have don't show 6400's or 4300's or 4333's at 77th.

You might be looking at Kevin's roster page on the site, but the rosters we have are updated as often as new changes are made.

Yesterday Evening around 9:30pm, I spotted an Nova #6572 working the 146 NB on State @ Polk. Is it an Loaner and was that bus from FG?

Kevin needs to update his garage roster page. Buses, a few routes, and some garage runs information are currently in need of updating..

I agree.

I would guess a thing like a job and being site moderator both keep Kevin pretty busy and leaves little time to the site administrator side of things. And that's quite understandable as far as I'm concerned. So I suppose one of you is volunteering to learn how to be a site administrator and go in and do the updates you're speaking about since you got the extra time to complain about it not being done?

Based on your roster numbers, 24 artics went to 103rd from 77th not 30. :lol:

Few corrections on your roster BusHunter:

I've mentioned #6423 being transitioned to Chicago from 74th nearly 3 weeks ago.

#1900, #1901 and #1994 are @ 77th.
