For all you CTA haters, and there are many of us, I link the above a blog to some folks who are doing something about ongoing transit issues.
Lee, a one time commentator here, and frequent commentator at Yo Chicago, provides information on living car-free while also educating the public on taking political action in the name of mass transit in the state.
I've added a permanent link under "Chicago Local" in my side bar.
Although Lee's a little more down on the transit situation than I, the site is definately doing the right things. It's fair... and they take shots when needed at the GOV and state legislatures.
