#804 was out a lot last week still looked like it was in decent shape. However if it is indeed at South Shops from the rumor you heard it is either there for retirement or maintenance. Also you don't have to make a separate thread on things you've heard from rumors. Theirs a better way to go about posting things on the forum.

Wow, so that means the 800-series will soon to be retired as well in favor of more electric bus deliveries by the CTA.

Today, there is no sign of an 800-series running according to the Maths tracker. I guess on most days it will 'quietly' be in service on any street, based on Kedzie garage routes. When these buses begin to retire, the CTA will have it's history preserved...

Yeah. To me,their too young to retire.

Well, they were a test order, and many times test orders go early due to lack of funding for a small quantity like these New Flyers here. They were retired at 14 years old, well below normal age retirement of 18-20 years.

the 800's might last that long if 804 is not retired.

804's been off the tracker for at least the last three days, so South Shops maybe?

That's why they retired them in 2009
