the interiors have been 'Pulse' for a few yrs, maybe their being wrapped now

Not right now necessarily.  I rode #6511 on the 250 last week and it is still in its nice blue color.

It's a crappy video but it answers your question lol

Not as crappy as that interior. Especially that purple lighting, that'd get annoying real quick. I'm glad for the wifi & chargers though. Thanks!

Damn so regular 270 is every hour and pulse is every 20 mins?

Pulse is every 10 min peak, 15 min midday/weekend, and 20 min evening. 

Seems the big cut is those who ride the 270 north of Golf Mill, the peak service is going from 30 min to 60 min.

So the Pulse service doesn't have a route number?

Unless it is internalized, it’s Pulse.

Dempster is also slated to have Pulse service eventually.   Dempster and Milwaukee cross each other

  There has to be some way to identify these routes other than Milwaukee Pulse or Dempstet Pulse.  I guess we will get some idea soon.

You are comparing apples and oranges.   Each CTA rail line has a NAME which happens to be a  color.  Each Metra Line has a NAME like BNSF or North Central.   If you are boarding at Union Station,  you look for the name to see which track it boards on.  Each CTA and Pace bus route has a ROUTE NUMBER AND NAME  i.e 63 63rd or 270 Milwaukee.  So even if it is a pulse, or BRT, it should come with a route number, like P270 or 270X, with a name like Milwaukee Pulse.  Remember the Pulse service will expand next to Dempster with eyes toward Harlem, Halsted, and 95th in the future.

All Pace routes (so far) have a number, even if it is not used in Pace’s marketing materials. The Schaumburg Trolley is 905, and all the On Demands are numbered as well (mostly in the 590’s). His question is whether Pulse routes will similarly have a unique number, which hasn’t been identified yet.

It’ll be pulse. Routes externally don’t necessarily need a number for it to matter. There will likely be an internal number that planners and analysts will use, but to the usual eye, it’s Pulse.

I ride these almost every day to and from Jeff Pk.  The 6500s are very nice buses.
