Chicago and Illinois Mass Transit Put on Hold
The Chicago Tribune ran this story immediately after a Illinois House vote on mass transit. No bueno.
I have not been posting about the ongoing transit issue in "mass", but have followed the story like most Chicagoans. Sites like the CTA Tattler linked in the sidebar are better aggregates for stories like these. However, most people I know are not talking about this. There are comments about the length of commute on the CTA Red and Brown Line, but few bring up the transit crisis. My guess is we see the new Brown Line stations being built on the North Side and think that progress is being made.
I'd just like to see modernized, quieter tracks and some electric buses after 100 years of the same old, same old.
