Some of the 8325-42 have 3 stickers on them and so do 8236-8247 do you guys think 103rd will send the 8325’s back or will they keep them just like FG is keeping all of its flyers that they got 1034-1051

That simply mean for the most part that FG maintenance stil haven't took the 3 stickers off yet. I have a feeling FG will lose all of its Novas and will have only flyers in the near future.

I don't think 103rd will get rid of all its flyers I just think they'll get more novas in exchange for flyers 😊👍🏽. Have a good feeling fg will be all flyers like it was all 6400 novas. But we'll see in time if that happens or not.

Bus 8348 was out on 77 Belmont this afternoon.  Buses 8239 and 8245 still have the 3 sticker in the windshield and were also on 77 Belmont this afternoon.

Yeah, that's weird and did you know 11 years ago, I saw a few NF buses leaving 103rd Garage with "86 Narragansett" signs

We might have been wrong about 103rd getting the 8325s, but FG going all NF is still fairly unlikely. We already got the NW siders on the forum saying FG is the system stepchild. PLEASE do not put out scenarios that will increase that fuss.

#8343 was never out at 103rd so how did that happen?

Program glitch?  Unlike Pace, all CTA buses have all CTA bus routes programmed .  Back in the day, before electronic destination signs, if you saw a bus with a North Terminal, South Terminal, East Terminal, or West Terminal sign, chances were that bus was borrowed from another garage.

We're still missing 8346 at FG. 8343-8345 and 8347-8349 has been sighted at one time or another on the trackers.

I've noticed that the 8325's are mostly spent on the 95, 119, and 71. With a sprinkle of 28,15, and 106 lol.

Anybody know the whereabouts of 8346?

8346 is the proverbial "needle in a haystack"... my speculation it's still at 77th. Why, I don't know.... maybe it's a training bus like 7900 is.

Goes in line with the night car reasoning. A few nights ago all the N5 and 34 were novas

95, 34/119 and 71 are about the highest volume non-artic routes. I'm surprised they aren't on the 29 more often, the 29 or the J14 is usually the route with the highest ridership at 103rd

Also I noticed that they on the 29 State A lot. I saw one on  State and Roosevelt. I didn't see the # but I think was 8342.

Damn 29 pulls more weight than J14?? I thought it would be lower on the totem pole

29 has a larger service area. J14 is attractive because its express, but 67th to Roosevelt is a hell of a larger gap than 103rd to 95th. I also imagine a small part of what props up its numbers are Navy Pier riders from the north side getting off at Grand and taking whatever comes first.
