Not surprising. Isn't that the last of the S blue NABIs?

It was surprising because why did it take them over a month just to now bring it to West while fully stacked with CNGs? I almost speculated that the remaining ones from South were retired.

Probably because of warranty work for the CNGs, they had to keep spares around until they were all done.  The 6600s at South are no longer running either from what I can tell and what Busjack alluded to earlier so they're probably gone too.

But we haven’t seen them on the road since earlier this month. We don’t know what’s the plan for #6232, #6241-45, #6250, and #6254.

If I'm not mistaken, #6232 and #6241-#6242 were formerly at West while the remaining ones were Joliet buses.  I'm sure all of these buses logged a bunch of miles on them now so I wouldn't be shocked if they were retired, but they could also pop up at North too at some point if they still have life in them.  I don't see any of these buses going back to West.

They were originally Joliet buses, but when Joliet went all EZ Rider, went to Academy, and then to S when Academy folded.

Well, #6268 is back at West while not in service but the driver was nice enough to let me and another passenger on heading straight to Forest Park.

And that's the only one that's out today too.  Wonder why this bus is still hanging around?

I thought that one has been retired, since it was mentioned that it's been at West for awhile, no wonder why I haven't seen that on any South Routes since this Summer.

6262 was NEVER at South. Until a couple of weeks ago, it was always a NS bus.

Ohh I'm sorry, I believe that I was thinking of 6162.

I can't speak to that. The last time I saw it was in Hammond in about 2004.9_9

Thank you so much! I was wondering what was going on with that bus all this time.
