7900-series Nova LFS - Deliveries & Assignments

Recommended Posts

Higher numbered deliveries have begun to arrive at South Shops, including 7927.

Which means that well see some 7900s in service on the Chicago streets soon. The question is which garage(s) will the first couple buses be assigned to?

It's just like it was the first time with the #6400's. The buses are all out of sequence. Good news. Now I hope fg can get some nf's!!

That seems odd in that 103rd has no Novas. Why send new buses there when 74th and Chicago Ave have the oldest Novas?

Lol nah I'm just kiddin but that would be cool though. My guess is 77th only because I'm thinking outside the box a little cause cta always seem to surprise us when it comes to these type of decisions. I mean no one thought the pink line would be the 1st to get the 5000's so let's shake it up a bit lol matter fact I'm going to stay with 103rd just for the heck of it.

I know you're kidding, but 103rd actually does kind of make sense, given the high crime areas some of its routes go through.

Maybe, but given 77th and 74th have more routes that are pretty long in length, both of those cover more ground through higher crime areas than 103rd tends to relatively speaking. For example, with just the 9 and 49 alone, buses from 74th run through the former Rockwell Gardens area, parts of the Lawndale area, Back of the Yards, Englewood, West Englewood, Chicago Lawn and Auburn Gresham. The main potential trouble spots I see for 103rd are Roseland and maybe Pullman. And I stress I'm only saying they're potential hot spots based on newspaper crime numbers, given most of the times I've ridden through those areas I got through them trouble free.

Just saw a 7900 series sitting at 77th garage couldn't get the number though. I was going to drive through there to get a closer look but I didn't have my cta Id on me at the time but great to see them in person.

Shots of #7904

Update: There's another one inside the garage on the Vincennes side.

Looks like it's parked next to one of the 6400s that it's supposed to be replacing.

Looks like it has yet to receive it's plate, so it won't be in revenue service for a bit.

I'll say give it until the end of this month for some of them to start service.

#7901 arrived at South Shops 2/3/14, was tested internally, not yet placed into service

...

Do you have the paperwork on that? Or is it just the one driver who apparently reported the wrong number (and other incorrect things)?

Look real closely, and you can see that the operator logged on as if it were running a #75.

Fence prevents me from making out any detail, so I'll have to take your word for it. :o:D

The 7900's will start to operate on the streets soon, I assure you.... the CTA has top men working on getting them ready now...

And before you ask me who.... TOP men.... ^_^

Harrison Ford isn't in good shape; the door of the Millennium Falcon fell on his foot. So, you are going to have to wait a while.

      I'm creating this topic because we currently have 25 Novas set to go into assignment at some point in the near future. This is the only purpose for this topic, do not use it to cast arguments about the past assignments or anything as such. Let's monitor CTA for the assignments of these buses and post them here(and perhaps a pic or two as well on route).

      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?
