Pace has wrapped 6963 for Ankin Law

That's bizarre, but must be a similar theory to all the billboards for personal injury lawyers on I-80/94 in Gary. There's going to be a wreck on the expressway, eventually.

Also shows that Pace is more willing to take the money than promote the service,but since they say it is at capacity,maybe to be expected.

Safe to assume the  bumper and/or rear of the bus still has Bus On Shoulder or Pace  Express signage in compliance with Illinois law?

The legal issue has always been the Authorized to Use the Shoulder, which is on this bus. I'm still not sure how Pace basically got around that on the Edens.

Maybe this bus can run someone over and give Howard an instant client. That's how his stick figure commercials used to work.

Could the rules have been adjusted in the past 7 yrs to only requiring the bumper authorization?   the 194 and 190 buses seem to only need the bumper.  The coaches might be more related to marketing

The marketing was the PACE EXPRESS. That, would, of course indicate that Pace is not marketing Edens* except for 6729, which I bet was at the unveiling event.

Given the possibility that rules may be different on different expressways,** I don't think Howard Ankin has any interest in marketing AUTHORIZED TO OPERATE ON THE SHOULDER, which is all over this bus.

**Despite your post in another topic, I don't think people are walking to work from Skokie to Northbrook, Deerfield, or Buffalo Road, and work is the main destination for 620 and 626.

**For instance, the Edens has road signs all over the place, while i-55 only has a few.

Probably more signs on edens as its outer shoulder and more conflicts with other vehicles vs left side.

I was referrimg to walking from lake forest metra even with more trains still need to get to work site.

My comment wasn't directly that Ankin was promoting BOS, but that he had nothing to do with the AUTHORIZED TO USE THE SHOULDER legends on the front and side of the bus; what did was whatever operating requirement still applies on I-55.

The promotional aspect is that this bus says Ankin, not Pace Express.

I know our (why do I say that even though I left Pace three years ago?) Orions are gone, LA's are still going...and catching fire.

Yeah they aren't the best buses in the world, but when you look at the mileage these buses take in, its staggering. Ultimately if they want to play the blame game it goes down to the FTA for allowing the buses to run without replacement the TA is just doing its job with what it has. All the TA can do is run them as little as possible and try to manage as best they can. Nice story though. Lots of TAs have the same issues and graveyards but I was really surprised cali has any diesels at all.

When I was in LA, I rode one on the 205 out of the Blue Line to Carson. It actually was stable enough that it could stick around a little longer...
