I thought 7900 was at that 87th/Greenwood facility? How long has it been at shops?

I have a picture of it from SS yesterday with “7” on it

Kedzie will be the next garage to get Novas 👍🏽. 

If that is the case, Where will they be coming from and what will go in their place?

If you look closely it has an interior signage and with Rt.20 being used as a pilot for it that is my best best as to why it is there, I remember seeing #7902 at SS a few weeks ago sitting along the south fence. So perhaps it was receiving upgrades for the pilot.  

Might be I didn't look inside the bus but if I see it again I'll try to look to confirm it

Well In that swap case probably 103rd will give the 18 8325’s to K since 8342 is already over there and K will give 3 flyers

Mhm, but two garages got 8325s, and one has less than the other. I think we're gonna have a Saturday Night Massacre Swap and FG will lose their novas

I hate to say it but that just might happen. I don't know why things are the way they are when it comes to cta and how FG end up with the buses they do. But I think FG will end up having all flyers the same as they had all 6400 Novas. And the 7900's they do have will get split up perhaps between 103rd and Kedzie depending on how many they're suppose to get. Or maybe all 7 garages will have Novas and will get about 60 each in the near future.

Not gonna happen unless 3 gets more Novas from another garage. K may get their novas from Chicago or FG. I only say that because it wouldn't make sense for the operators to go through all that training only to have them get rid of the few novas 103rd have. 7903-04 are back at 77th. But I do see why you said what you said though considering K has 8342. Perhaps they'll get 8342-49.

In my opinion you might not be wrong but I also might be wrong that maybe Chicago will end up giving K novas and 8342 is just there to train the operators I feel like since Chicago has more novas then any other garage then that’s who’s going to give novas to Kedzie

Yea they might up their Nova's to K I just think that they should leave FG alone with this swap

FG is far from Kedzie so Chicago is only choice or 77th 74th

103rd and FG are out the books so C 7 and 6 and are the only garages that will give K novas

Just my idea: If Kedzie is to get Novas, that would be 6 out of 7 garages. I'd say how about CTA evens it out: 75 Novas per garage.

I thought Kedzie wash racks or some other garage feature that couldn't support NOVA's, has Kedzie gotten equipped now?

I honestly believe that's what's going to happen.

      Good day all!

      My name is Dante, and I am a Transit Systems Engineer based in NYC. I have been following this forum for a couple years here and there, so I finally decided to join. One of the reasons is because my new position will have me traveling all over the country a lot, and I have learned a lot about CTA. Glad to be here, and hope to be a helpful part of some discussions.

      Question #1

      I know a little about the upcoming procurement as I have the RFP, but from your prospective, who all do you think has a chance at this contract, and who would you like to see it awarded to?
