Bus Tracker widget for Mac OS X; future of theCTA on South Side; Thanksgiving reroutes
Kevin Zolkiewicz just recently launched the Bus Tracker Widget for Mac OS X.
For those with a Mac, it makes it much easier to know when the next bus is coming. You can quickly glance at bus arrival times for your stops in OS X's Dashboard without having to load the Bus Tracker web site. More info and the free download is at http://widget.chicagobus.org/.
"The Future of the CTA on the South Side." I got a note last week from Sam Feldman last week about the article he wrote on this topic. He's a University of Chicago student and the managing editor of Chicago Weekly. Check out his story on possible future expansion of the CTA on the South Side.
Thanksgiving Day reroutes. The downtown parade Thursday will cause lots of bus reroutes. The CTA will run on a Sunday schedule Thursday, and on a regular schedule for Black Friday. Details here.
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving! We'll be taking a few days off, looking for the Holiday Train.
