In 2006, after 11 years, the CTA went back to New Flyer, initially for 265 new low floor buses. Although additional orders eventually brought the total to 1050 buses. Archer Garage was the first garage to receive them, although they were subsequently transferred to other garages. #1006 is seen southbound on the #62 Archer route, in downtown Chicago on State St. at Randolph St.


NEW FLYER LOW FLOOR ARTICULATED (4000 SERIES)

In 2009, an order by Seattle Metro for 150 New Flyer low floor articulated hybrid buses, was diverted to the CTA. This bus is seen waiting at Van Buren St. and Wells St., ready for an afternoon rush hour run.


NEW FLYER LOW FLOOR ARTICULATED (JEFFERY JUMP)

In 2012, the CTA began marketing its #14 Jeffery Express service as the "Jeffery Jump", with some elements of Bus Rapid Transit. A group of New Flyer low floor articulated hybrid buses was repainted for this service, including #4093, seen northbound on Jeffery Blvd. at 87th St.
