Chicago:
$3 Each Way on the CTA?

Oct 26, 2009

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) is talking about raising the cost of an El ride to $3.

We live in a city that gives out money to United Airlines to move from Elk Grove Village to downtown, and to MillerCoors Beer when it decided to set up headquarters here. Stop subsidizing business and there will be plenty of money for the CTA.
