CTA Bus Garage Rosters

I think I just saw #1271 heading up Kedzie ave at Belmont out of service heading to np.

Hmm NP seems to be grabbing more 1000s from either FG or 77th.In the More Bus Moves thread, pete6125 mentioned seeing 1301 on the 36 Broadway last night.

Actually, 1271 and 1272 are/were based at 103rd. They were reassigned there during the Red Line-related shuffle last May. Before then, they had been at FG along with 1273-74 which migrated to 77th.

You're right I forgot about that.

Ok I updated the roster with the latest info off the roster. A couple things to note, no Novas or Opus' have been retired or placed on long term hold. #1468 went to long term hold. (I believe this was the bus involved in the 20 cars accident at Kedzie/Diversey where the driver passed out. (story on my youtube channel) #4170 reportedly has gone to 103rd, I didn't change that on the roster so anyone let me know if you see it there. Else no changes just a bus here and there we missed on the roster. I moved a few buses not yet reflected on the roster. i myself saw #4054 on the #152, so it's at Np and I'll put #1301-02 at Np too. I think it's too early to say whether #1271 is at NP or not.

The bus involved in the crash at Diversey/ Kedzie on 12/21/2012 was 1466. Clearly identified in phot on abc news site.

#4170 at 103rd? That may be a loan.... Ill check all of 103rd's routes for it but if its true then the 4000's are starting to lose organization as far as assignments go even with the fact that the 4300's are here. I can understand that 4080-4105 being wrapped throws the sequence off seeing that they're only for Jeffery Jump service (well supposed to be LOL! Maybe they should've wrapped 4058-4084 to stay numerical if they were shedding artics to NP to make room for the 4300s). but that makes the roster look a bit all over the place now.

K-4000-4053

NP-4054-4077, 4114-4169,4171-4207

103rd- 4078-4113, 4170.

Why send that bus alone?

Hmm #1468 I'm told was involved in an accident at Kedzie and Diversey. Maybe I got the buses confused.

1466 is in service, saw it on the 132 on Friday evening.

Can somebody tell me what the hell is going on with these unusual fleets. I saw #1282 on the #12 Roosevelt @ Californina going westbound this morning.

Well then I must be right. :) (sort of) There must have been a second accident there. If #1468 is in service, which the roster says no, then I am wrong. :(

CTA scatters these buses all around. All long as we keep a roster we know what's going on.

@Sam92: #4170 may be a test to test the effectiveness of longitudinal bus service on the south side. I have seen crazy things before on the roster, so I don't know if I entirely believe it. Maybe our 103rd operators on here can elaborate if it's there or not but I haven't seen it anywhere.

You mean 4078-4112, 4113 was never transferred to 103rd that bus remained at NP.

No, from 103rd. Most of those are in the Jeffery Jump range, while 6 has a few of them, and 14 has a few 4300s.

Well actually the majority of the 4300's at 103rd are ran on the 6 while a few are on the J14.

1282 was one of the NF 40-foot buses that got transferred from 77th to Kedzie after the Dan Ryan section of the Red Line reopened last month. 1277-1282 were the transferred buses.

I'm surprised they didn't get transferred to Forest Glen. It's kinda weird to have them at Kedzie.

Yeah 4051 did go to NP as well as 4052. 4051 is on 147, and 4052 is presumably lined up on Franklin to start a run on 135 as Bustracker has it queued among buses that haven't yet started their runs on that route.

The whole entire fleet is unstable. It's ridiculous. Hopefully the fleet will be stable when the Novas are retired while the new Novas arrives.

The fleet hasn't been "stable" since about 1977.

Especially after CTA shrunk it in 2010, there has to be some effort to make sure that garages have what they need. Add into that efforts here and there to balance out mileage on the fleet (77th's seem to get overworked) and, of course, now some buses apparently out of service for rehabs.

Well actually the majority of the 4300's at 103rd are ran on the 6 while a few are on the J14.

So wait...4000 series DE60LFs are wrapped for the J14 but aren't used?Or are there not enough wrapped buses?

Exactly! I think that the fleet fell off the charts after the Archer Garage was shut down. Any chance for it to be usable again in the future or it's a done deal?

The property was sold about a year ago. Go back and look at the News Briefs.
