FG takes care of their novas and flyers but flyers mostly the only thing they fix on the 6400’s is the basic stuff

103rd novas aren’t pulled from service it’s only FG probably they are sending them to 103rd for fall pick

It makes sense that one garage gets all 25 of the 8325s.  I always thought that FG should be that garage,  but we know that 103rd garage had some headlines concerning drivers being attacked.   For that reason they received some Novas.  I suppose FG won't miss 7 Novas, as some haven't seen any of those yet.

The question is whether FG will get any additional 7900s if/when C and 74th get their Proterras.  I don't know if CTA can get any more funding, but they need to get some more new buses to eliminate the 6400s altogether,  even if they have to piggyback on another agency's order.  The only other alternative is to get those extra artics rolling on some more P routes and send New Flyers to F.

I mean C did steal some 8200’s from FG they are yet to return those but I don’t think they will since FG got 1374-1379 last year from C but C been stole some 8200’s for couple years now but we will see when these porterras show up

If indeed 103rd is getting all the #8325's why am I not surprised. Fg has the oldest 1000s the oldest buses 6400s and when it does get new buses it loses half of them anyway. I wouldnt be surprised if fg Loses the 8200s for the 7900s at 77th. Then they can truly have all the old buses. It probably will happen when I dont know but here we are again those buses probably have lower miles than the 7900s and the south side powers that be are most likely licking there chops. Fg might not be gaining anything in the fall pick they should be losing 54a. That is your 7 buses. It's just the same old song and dance.

As bad as it seems 103rd along with 77th isn't that far behind when it comes to having the oldest NF's aside from FG and possibly losing 7 more newer novas is a bad look in the short term but in the long run was it really a big loss?

Yea C  got then 82's cuz 2 reasons I say to test them hard seats & cuz for some reason they sent all the 41's they had back to 3 & P if they had of kept them I it would have just been 7 & 6 that stole the 82's from em

With the 8200’s and 8300’s (not the 8325’s) it is a permanent move now because FG C and 74th and 77th been having the same novas for a while and it ain’t going anywhere beside FG’s 8325’s moving probably because they aren’t in service anymore only 103rd’s are out

Looks like 8345 8346 8348 are back at FG idk about the rest 

#8343-#8349 were always there to begin with, they were just kept oos for whatever reason after the air & water show. If they got transferred Mr.cta85 would of been the first to let us know of the possible moves.

I like how they tinted the windows on the 8325 + but they didn't tint the fronts it would look so cold with them tinted also

If you're talking about the front windshield then that wouldn't work out lol. I rode 1 before in the night time and you can barely see out the windows so for the operator that wouldn't be a good look to say the least lol. That's probably the only negative thing I can say about the 8325's honestly 👍🏽.
