The Chicago Transit Authority west terminal bus loop for the CTA Route # 77 Belmont Avenue bus line. River Grove Illinois USA. July 2011.

Hello everyone!

Welcome aboard the "Bus Day" edition of Eddie's Railfan Page.

I took this photo last week, in near northwest suburban River Grove Illinois USA.

Seen here on the southside of West Belmont Avenue just east of the intersection at North Cumberland Avenue, is the west terminal loop for the Chicago Transit Authority Route # 77 Belmont Avenue bus line.

Prior to January of 1973, this was a turnaround bus loop facility for electric trolleybuses assigned to the CTA Route # 77 Belmont Avenue route.

The overhead line poles that suspended the overhead twin trolley wires above the driveway at this terminal betweemn 1949 to the end of CTA electric trolleybus service in 1973, are still standing here today.
