Let's invade CTA chair's blog!
The competition is mounting! CTA Chair Carole Brown now has her own blog, as Tony from Save Chicago Transit and a commenter here have noted this week. She invites questions and comments, so we should take her up on it!
Her post about the Progress in Springfield contained this interesting note:
"CTA's fares have increased over 95% since 1983, faster than the rate of inflation. Metra fares have increased just 20%. If CTA had received sufficient funding to hold fares to a 20% increase, today's fare would be just $1.10, and ridership would be 70 million trips higher."
We'll keep an eye on her and report interesting stuff she utters. Meanwhile, we should be asking her some of the questions that the CTA Insider answers.
