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) ??

Yea Motorola is what they use I seen a bunch of supervisors with it

Depends on when you rode, but most likely. I know the change in terminal from 106th/Mackinaw to 103rd/Stony was because buses on the 26 ending their runs went that way anyway, so if it didn't go out of service, it most likely went downtown. Or maybe on a school run for some other route.

Well it definitely went back to downtown because I checked it 2hrs later and it said 26 South Shore and the bus was 4115 on tracker

Cermak (22nd Street) was originally #22 in the original scheme. 21 was Fulton/21st. Clark/Wentworth was Thru-Route 22, which was a different series, and local Clark and Wentworth cars were considered 2, This was soon seen as a problem. So Cermak became 21, Clark/Wentworth kept 22, and Fulton/21st was renumbered 15, which had been its old Thru-route number. This is also why Canal-Wacker bus became 15, as it partially replced the Fulton/21st carline.

Now that I think about it, what is the purpose of the 10 going all the way to water tower and not just Og/Union? Who is it serving by going all the way up there, especially when there is existing, competing service that's almost, if not more frequent (146/147/151, maybe the 3)?

A lot of tourists stay on the Mag Mile and the Museum is a tourist destination.
