Artics still go in the terminal at 31st and Komensky for whatever reason and it bugs the hell out of me at times especially when there's two sitting in there. 

That's strange, I've seen a lot of #53 artics near Kostner. Komensky is a very small terminal so I don't know how they manage to fit artics in there

City needs more red light cameras... the only people that complain about red light cameras are the ones eating red lights.

Not true.   In the suburbs, and most places in this country,  the yellow light lasts for 5 seconds.  In Chicago,  the yellow lasts for 3 seconds .  Sometimes I think its more like 2.5 seconds   if safety was the concern,  then the yellow would last 5 seconds in the city also.  But we knew its about revenue and not safety.  Plus they cause more congestion.   Who in their right mind would enter an intersection to turn  left with a camera there? So maybe 1 or 2 cars can make a left turn without getting a ticket.

Those 2 seconds separate safety and citation.

Cops are not above the law and neither are you. Two wrongs don't make a right, and frankly a CTA bus operator (whether on duty or not) running a red light and blatantly recording it is absurd. Even cops don't just cruise right through the lights most of the time, 9/10 times they'll at least hesitate and check for traffic, which I didn't notice in the video. Not to mention the cops you see could be responding to calls and were instructed to keep their sirens off for various reasons.

Honestly, this place is going downhill fast. It's sad to see.

Well I was just recording 6803 like I was sitting at the liight first I. Waitited for traffic to pass & yes sometimes they do be creeping responding & a lot of times they be just running the light cruising responding to nothing at the end of the day this is a bus topic not what somebody did topic

For any of my fellow travelers and operators god speed with you because cottage grove is an absolute mess. I never thought it was this bad until I picked it but on the weekends it's just nutty. Imagine having to work a double and triple street then add on to that not having any reliefs. I haven't had any easy time on cottage until my very last trip of evening around 10:30. Currently there is only 6 buses out there and I unfortunately have to go work on that street. I wish CTA would do something about this because it keeps getting worse and worse. I had one passenger tell me that had to wait nearly 2 hours for a bus because they had to keep switching buses due to no reliefs getting made. That to me is unacceptable and should be looked into if it hasn't already because I have get caught in the crossfire of tension from the passengers. I'm grateful it hasn't gotten violent but I'm starting wonder what the breaking point. 

I most definitely feel your pain bro it has got worst

When I have my mid afternoon to early evening runs on pulaski there's usually two sitting in there and even on rare occasion they'll also will be a #82 sitting in there around 8 or 9 pm with one #53 that is usually an artic.

Yeah I saw an artic in the front of the turnaround. If 2 artics go in there then dont ask me how the #53A goes in there cause theres really no room. 

Was driving around and noticed the irving pk cumberland bathroom for the operators is a port-o-potty. I was like really, what happened to the bathroom they had? I hate port-o -potties. They opened a gas station down the street. I'd probably just take a personal there.

Yeah i've normally had to honk my horn to get one of them to move and reposition themselves in the terminal and trust me it is a tight squeeze. I've noticed a lot of port-o-potty's pop back up recently. I remember when I had 87th street on the weekends last pick that I would have to use the regular bathroom at the damen terminal before going to Western,Cicero and Commercial because of the port-o-potty getting removed for a few months. As much I as loved my runs on 87th not having anywhere to go for a quick bathroom break at the end of each terminal other than damen became torture for me.

The bus number is important since I rode 2 routes from K recently.   12 and 18.
