Naw it went back to C in 2016 when for some reason they took the 40&41's from them & traded them 1374-86 & 82-8211&8225-35

I've been wondering when it would make its return to the CFD Academy.

How come the 31 31st bus runs out of K instead of 77th

When did that change? Initially it came out of 77th as the two buses used for the route came from the a.m runs of the 1 Bronzeville/Union..  Perhaps the thinking now is that 35 and 39 come from K, why not the 31?   Maybe the 31 could interline with the 35.

My bad I got it mixed up the 31 runs out of 77th and the 35 31/35th runs out of K but also why does 35 run out of K instead of 77th

When Archer closed, the 35 and 39 were assigned to 77th.  The thinking then was driver reliefs at the Six 35th Red Line station.  I believe the reasons for switching to K were twofold.  First, the extension of the 35 to Cicero made deadheads very long and secondly, K provides a direct driver relief for both routes at Kedzie on their respective routes.  77th drivers had to bus or walk to the Red Line and ride the train to 35th.

I think it was just there for training somebody that day cuz all buses that comes there from different garages only be there for training that day then return to their assign garages

Might just be training new hires since that's Chicago's second function. They lost them cause 66 couldn't use them efficiently

Does anyone know a good radio to buy on amazon for CTA channels my price range is 30$-60$

 

Your best bet is to try facebook marketplace or ebay for a used motorola radio or scanner

I believe Motorola is what they use ? since its a local company (schaumburg) ??
