"Key" routes provide the backbone of CTA bus service. They include the most productive routes plus additional routes to provide geographic coverage of Chicago. "Support" routes are the remaining routes, which support the rail and key bus network.

Occasionally, a bus operator may enter the route number incorrectly into the fare box. If it is not possible to determine what the route number should have been, CTA considers the route “unspecified” and assigns it the route number "0".
