6 or the 5
The 6 is the Jackson Park express bus, and the 5 is the South Shore night bus. They are part of the CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) system. Both buses travel through some hard areas that some might feel a bit unsafe in.
Also, the 6 is a reference to the Folk Nation and the 5 refers to the People Nation. The Gangster Desciples are part of the Folk Nation, and the Vice Lords are in the People Nation. These are the two largest street gangs in Chicago
