  • re: Every CTA Bus.
    From the article:
    “The bus Emanuel and Carter rode Monday is the last of a 425-bus order
    to roll off the assembly line and hit the streets of Chicago, officials

    In addition, a successful test earlier this year means between 20 and
    30 electric buses will be added to the CTA fleet, Carter said.”

    Last year on a CleanTechnia, a clean energy site, I predicted that Chicago would never buy another fossil fuel bus. It continues to get easier to stand by that prediction.

    Headline for the Naperville Metra article is misleading. The train stop itself is ADA compliant, the improvements are specifically to the station house itself on the South side of the tracks.
