Managed to snag a shot. Pretty bad but it serves its purpose. Route 8A at 95th.

Looks like CTA is bringing back the classic 'STOP' light at the rear. I remember when I was little, like early 2000s little, I saw them on one of the Flxible buses (several years before retirement)

Interesting. Was it one of the buses equipped with flipdot destination signs or regular LEDs?

I believe it was an uppercased, dot-matrix font for higher visibility of the word STOP, so cars will know that the bus has stopped

What happened to FGs 8325s?  Haven’t seen them in weeks! 

I remember 1 time 8343 was out once and that’s about it other then that none have been out and they are parked up at FG by the wall when you go down Armstrong from elston to the left

They're is no clear indication that they will get sent to 103rd.  I said this in the other topic yesterday about a number of factors being the reasoning behind why no one saw any of them out, one of them being malfunctioning trackers and the other being a different setup than the original orders before them but I didn't want to over speculate.

      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?
