I heard dozens of sirens last night on Lakeshore Drive, and apparently this is the reason (see link). Anyone else think the CTA needs to do a better job maintaining its buses? I've been on several that have broken down on LSD during rush hour, but this is ridiculous!

aww, heh.

Yeah I'm glad that no one got hurt. Unbelievable that there was 140 people on that bus. Especially considering that when I DID get off work at 3, I saw at least 6 of the 147s driving around.
