Anthony Devera Posted May 8, 2018 Report Share Posted May 8, 2018 I have heard many people complain about Route 96 on Lunt because Lunt is a very narrow street. The best alternative to Lunt appears to be Pratt, which would be advantageous because not only is it much wider than Lunt, but the route would be much better spaced, as it would be farther from Touhy (290) while not being too close to Devon (155). I definitely agree that moving Route 96 to Pratt would be a good move, but unfortunately it does not seem like CTA wants to do anything like that, as it keeps Route 96 the same in the North Shore Coordination Plan. I also notice that Route 2 going in both directions on E 60th St is a similar situation. Although Route 2 runs peak-only, in the morning peak it goes in the opposite direction on 60th St as routes 171 and 172. I have seen two buses trying to pass each other on 60th, and it seems like the drivers have a hard time. I think the morning peak Route 2 should run westbound via E 59th St rather than 60th. 59th is not too far from 60th, and it already has existing bus stops currently used by the 171, 172, and 192. If there are any other examples of two-way buses on narrow streets, feel free to post them below. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
