Archer Garage Assigned Routes

Recommended Posts

I’m looking at what bus routes were assigned to the Archer Ave. bug garage between the year 2000 and when the garage officially shut down. I’m aware of  few routes that were assigned there between that time, but if you know what other routes were, please comment below.

-21: Cermak Rd

-35th: 35th St

-39: Pershing Rd

-49: Western Ave

-X49: Western Ave Express

-50: Damen Ave

-62 Archer Ave (Oblivious)

-94: South California

Forgot what year it got cut, but the route 129 also was at Archer.

Speaking of cut routes, there was also 122 and the 170-174 UChicago routes.

Archer served 120 before the Streeterville extension. There was also the 165, which are interlined with the 63W during rush periods.

[several routes] (until 2008)

Which points out that there was the reallocation around 2008 to send assignments further south, essentially because K was overcrowded, and 74, with a stated capacity of 250 buses only had something like 195. 21 Cermak went back and forth, and 47, 51 went south.

Don't forget that 165 was also assigned there too in addition to what was mentioned in the opening post and Anthony Devera's additional ones quoted from Bill V's site.
