Why isn't the an Elston Bus Route

The oldies in the neighborhoods concerned might be laughing at this but, why isn't the a bus route in N. Elston Ave.? With the diverse commercial/residential demographics along Elston, the cost-benefit should be feasible. Ironically, there is a CTA bus garage is on Elston Ave.

    I would not be in favor of adding a bus route to Elston. I like that it is bus-free, it makes for a good alternate route for getting around, kind of like Laramie. A bus would choke the traffic.There are plenty of other routes available. Elston starts and ends at Milwaukee Ave so Milwaukee Ave bus is a good alternative.

  • Yeah, at this point in time, I would also be against an Elston bus.

Cuba Libre- new restaurant near Elston/Lawrence?

Does anyone know if this restaurant is open? It replaced a Mexican restaurant near the corner of Elston and Lawrence. I see lights, signs... But doesn't seem open yet? Anyone know?

  • No info, but I am interested as well. I live nearby and am keeping an eye on it!

  • t neighbor

    They are waiting for permits. They say a couple of weeks. It will be another Senor Pan restaurant. Food looks really good.

  • ASA1963 Interested in area

    I've been watching it also but city permits can take quite awhile unfortunately.
