Southbound CTA Route # 49 Western Avenue bus. Chicago Illinois USA. April 2006.
We are standing on the southwest corner of Western and Lealand Avenues in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood. This northside neighborhood with a heavily German population, is a hub of rush hour traffic activity. This is a Chicago Transit Authority 1990's vintage NOVA transit coach. These buses are fuel efficient, and the extremely congested northside rush hour traffic conditions, are bound to test the fuel efficiency of these coaches on a daily basis.
Believe Me...You have not experienced Rush hour, until You have been in a northside rush hour. Chicago's northside rush hours have got to be the worst of all of them around town.
