The 4 Cottage Grove seems to have the most people trying to scam a ride.  Every time I ride it to or from Downtown to 58th, there are at least two people per ride that have cards that aren't any good & about 2/3rds of the time, the driver relents & lets them ride.  I've seen one driver absolutely refuse to let someone ride on an empty or expired card is the one who said to the passengers "That guy tries this almost every day!"

The roughest route to me is probably Garfield and maybe 79th. I would also add an honorable mention being 63rd.

This topic seems, circumspect, to say the least, but I will say something always happens when I ride the 79 for more than 10 minutes. Can be anything, minor or major, but I usually have a story to tell. The 78 as well, I used to take it when I was younger when my mother worked at hull house and I would also occasionally go to the B&GC over there, but I Had interesting rides on there, which persisted the couple of times I rode years later (best taco spot in the city is at Montrose/Lincoln). Most recently was the drunk white man with an open container of what I think was R&R about 2 years ago

I’d say the 4 Cottage Grove. Not only do you get a mixed bag of ridership, but the surrounding activity makes a huge difference. Between 83 and 63 you can run up against, anything from a gun battle to a drug od in the middle of the street.
