CTA details scary proposed cuts, fare increases
My 14-year-old daughter picked up the paper this morning and started reading the CTA's disaster plan of proposed cuts and/or fare increases they would put into effect if the state legislature doesn't fork with more money.
"Dad, this is scary," she said, as she prepared to take the Red Line to school.
I couldn't have said it better.
No Purple Line Express. $2.50 fares. 50 cent transfers. 65 bus routes eliminated. Sunday schedule for weekdays. Very scary indeed.
E-mail the CTA and tell 'em how you feel about all this.
