I have done my share of pub crawls. They are usually good tippers.  I laid down the laws at the beginning of the charter. 1.  No opening of windows or roof hatches. 3.  Do not sit drinks on

Thursday I was on the 18 coming up to kedize & a woman on my bus fell having a seizure since my 3 year old daughter have them when she have a fever over & temp over 100 I knew exactly what to

74th's east west routes have always used Ashland as the relief point.  That goes all the way back to when the garage was located at 69th and Ashland (which is where the garage code 6 comes from).  Tho

Dam they aint seen 6470 ina long time & the back sign still stuck on 72

#6470 hasn't been used in so long. I remember taking it out for a spin back in 2019 during training and the bus although it was rehabbed it had so many issues. You needed a mechanic to jump start the bus and to just get it into gear he had to manually do some magical stuff with the wires in the overhead panel. It's only been used a handful of times since then.

Only on the southside you'll see this kind of stupidity. I guess the Hennessey was to important to get from the liquor store.......the sad part is there is a parking lot on the northern side of the building yet hardly any customers use it....🙄 

Note - Not my photos.

I need to revisit.   I thought the tetminal was on the north side of the liquor store and the parking lot was south of there.  It's been awhile and my memory may be off.  

That said, that type of stupidity isn't limited to the South Side.  It's more on the South side because that's the biggest part of the city.  Theres plenty of stupid on the West Side, even though that's the smallest section of the city.   There's stupid on the densely populated North Side  and even in the burbs there is plenty of stupidity

There are parking spaces on Halsted in front of the Liquor store. If they're full then why that person thinks it's a good idea to block an active bus  terminal when there are like open parking spaces like 100 feet away lol. I never seen this before but hopefully these drivers learn where parking is and isn't allowed. Also right in front of the bay was a NO ENTRY EXCEPT BUSES sign, and he missed that too. Damn these drivers in the city are crazy what do we find next? 😂O.o

I see drivers use the Clark/Arthur terminal as a U-turn spot all the time.  Especially when there aren't any buses in it.

The 7000 series that tested in the orange like last week looks lije its goijg to the pink line start at the 11:15 mark

 

They've tested on nearly every line so far but the chirps from some higher ups in the company are hinting at the Red,Brown and Orange lines. Either the red line trades off there 5000's to the orange and brown lines to retire the remaining 2600's on those lines.

Red deserves the new 7000s, as it has more riders than the rest of the system & we've had to suffer with those wretched bench seats, which let the homeless take up many of them all the time! 

Since they supposedly have more room for luggage [CTA said to put luggage beneath the bench seats], put the 5000s on the Blue & Orange Lines to the airports!
