The latest time schedule for 2 are in effect yesterday. The main feature is that during midday weekdays, the interval improved from 30 minutes to 20 minutes. I am interested in the distribution between Copans and Ravenswood buses. Here is what I have seen today:

Ravenswood buses:

0507 (7:20a, 11:30a, 4:00p, 8:30p from Westview Dr.)

0703 (7:40a, 11:50a, 4:20p, 8:45p from Westview Dr.)

0709 (8:00a, 12:20p, 5:00p from Westview Dr.)

0704 (8:20a, 12:40p, 5:15p, 9:30p from Westview Dr.)

0508 (8:35a, 1:00p, 5:35p from Westview Dr.)

0701 (8:55a, 1:20p, 5:55p, 10:00p from Westview Dr.)

Copans buses

0726 (9:15a, 1:40p, 6:15p from Westview Dr.)

9921 (9:35a, 2:00p, 6:35p, 10:30p from Westview Dr.)

1328 (9:55a, 2:20p, 7:00p, 11:00p from Westview Dr.)

0921 (10:15a, 2:40p from Westview Dr.)

0524 (10:35a, 3:00p, 7:30p from Westview Dr.)

1409 (10:50a, 3:20p from Westview Dr.)

0740 (11:10a, 3:40p, 8:00p from Westview Dr.)

9914 (12:05p, 4:40p, 9:00p from Westview Dr.)

Interesting points from the weekday 2 schedule:

Copans bus 1328 starts at 5:40a from Westview Dr. and ends at 12:37a to 207 St. 1328 has to traval way north to Copans Garage.

Copans bus 9914 actually starts its run at 12:05p from Westview Dr. and ends at 12:31a to Westview Dr. Although it is one of latest heading back to garage, but it only travels three round trips.

Meanwhile, regarding 72, I saw 0905, 0906, 0913, 0914, 605, 606, 1127 and 1411. Last week 0905 and 0906 were on 95X. Does that mean the MCI coaches are in regular service on 95X?

At least one is. I heard that 1427X was on the CB Smith route yesterday. I saw that very bus at a park/ride lot by I-95 And Cypress Creek Road on 3/14/15. I guess it was training (I didn't know there was a lot there, it doesn't seem to have express service, though 2 local BCt routes (60 and 62) serve it. Maybe it's for the nearby Cypress Creek Tri-Rail station, but to get to the station from the lot, it is necessary to cross somewhat-busy Andrews Av.)

The final piece of puzzle is 0520, which replaces 9914. Today is all-nabi fleet.

I suspect some (if not all) of the 9900s may be disappearing soon. Don't know how many were still running, but I think the 1400s (and the 1425xs, which will displace other buses that had been running on express routes to regular routes) should be sufficient to get rid of them. I wonder whatever became of the Hybrids that BCt was supposed to get in.

So I had to get some bloodwork done this morning at University Hopsital (which is on Unversity Dr a few blocks north of McNab). I'm coming out, and I see 0718 marked up as a University Breeze?! I guess the operator selected the wrong code. I don't remember if I saw it stop at any n-n-Breeze stops (I turned of University at Commercial). Wonder how many comments the B/O got from pax :)

Nice catch. Since none of the current artics are eligible for retirement, I guess these will go to some of the express routes that are currently using 40-foot buses. It would be nice if they appeared occasionally on the 72, as I see that route often, so there would be photographic opportunities :)
