ChicagoBus.org Updates

Recommended Posts

1000s update: #1147 seating arrangement (AMSECO InSight: 5 seats and Model 6468: 34 seats)

I was just thinking, that after 9 years, so much for the promise that the 6468s would be replaced as soon as an adequate amount were in stock.

I just didn't understand why not make them all have InSight seats.

7900s update: Chicago Garage has been added to the roster (8100-8199).

Would be kind of funny if some were mysteriously assigned to 103rd, thus making them assigned at all the number garages.

It wouldn't make any sense to just split an option (100 buses) up like that,

Since the garage code is 5 instead of C, maybe you got your wish, anyway. Anyway, the predictable happened.

Here's a quick heads up Garmon. In our recent discussions on where buses are located, I took a look at the Buses page on chicagobus.org and noticed that 4000s are still marked as being assigned to 77th.

Hey, is it possible to update some of the the route listings for the garages? For instance, the #122 and #123 are still up and the #12 and #151 are still listed as beloning to 5, to which I was informed was wrong.

Well yeah 122 and 123 for sure because those routes no longer exist per the December 2012 DeCrowd changes. But internal garage stuff like 12 and 151 no longer having shared runs from Chicago garage might also need a heads up from our bus operator members to confirm that a change like that among the garages did in fact take place to help our friend Garmon out. He does make it around to a lot of spots around the city, but even he can't be everywhere. xD  The run number stuff I've been giving a pass on for the longest because CTA's increased reliance on interlining and operators doing work on one route during the first half of their shift and then working a totally different route the second half has been making run numbers identifying work on a specific route meaningless.

#122 and #123 removal has been granted with one easy click away! xD

Indeed that it's the bus operators digression to verify changes with routes, run numbers, garage releases and acquisitions of routes, etc. I will remove #151 from Chicago Garage's list but #12 will stay on that list.

7900s update: 2 new photos have been added #8114 and #8115.

4000s update: Correction # of seats for buses 4000-4149 is 58. I believe the # of seats for buses 4150-4206 is 54 but I'll have to double check it unless anybody can help with that.

Chicago Gar no longer has 151 trips. However, still has 5 12 trips that pull out via Pulaski to Roosevelt, go to Indiana/16, back to Roosevelt/Kedzie then up Kedzie to Chicago and start 66 trips EB

That lines up with my having not seen any #151s from Chicago Garage but having recent memory of still seeing Chicago artics on the #12 in the morning in weekday AM rush.
