what about 20413? isn’t that pace superstitious number “13”? so it should be 20476

20413 does not exist, if you count 20401 to 20475, that gets you 75 buses, pretending 20413 exists and 20400 doesn’t. If 20400 exists and 20413 doesn’t, that’s still 75 buses.

Yes Pace has that dumb superstition.  So that is why I said we will see where 20476 lands.

I think 20476 makes 75 buses.  I think the series started at 20401 and skips 20413, which would make 20476 the 75th bus.  So we need to look for 20477 to see where it lands.

#20400 is a Pace bus. Saw it in the tracker and in person. Was looking to see if there was something different about it cause that's the prototype but it looks the same.

I don't remember seeing it in person.     But I will say these buses make the Axxess buses look dated.   It would be nice if CTA would assign one of its new bus order options to Pace, assuming New Flyer wins the contract.   In the meantime,  we will see if 20476 comes to W or pops up at NW.

Did it not get delivered at all or is it at South Holland?

I didn't see it on the tracker nor in person yet, and I don't go too far from West Division range (except for going to downtown Chicago)

I looked on the tracker this morning and there was not even one NABI out. I have a feeling they are all done, or maybe one will pop up in the afternoon. For some reason, some XD40 buses are starting to become ghost buses like 20415.

20400 has normal "Please move away from the doors" announcement unlike the other ones that have the "Please, do not stand in the rear door area" announcement.

I'm glad the NFs don't have the annoying "caution look both ways" and "bus is turning " announcements that are on the Axxess buses.

Just rode 20420.  This is the first New Flyer I noticed that the very first bank of lights on both sides of the bus were off while the bus was in motion and the doors closed.   When the operator opened the doors,  those lights came on, luke the other models.  Once the doors were closed,  the lights would go out after a 5 second delay.  I wonder if Pace is making this adjustment or New Flyer?
