Rapid Transit Authority? That's an oxymoron.
If you haven't already heard, the CTA has started work on the already slow and overcrowded red line that will reduce capacity by 25% and cause major slow downs for the next two years in order to increase capacity. Is it me or is the CTA actually trying to convince people not to take mass transit. As someone who takes CTA almost everyday, it seems like buses and trains keep getting more crowded while taking progressively longer to get to their destination. I think Frank Kruesi's plan (the president of CTA) is to grind CTA to a halt in an attempt to convince politicians that more money needs to be poured into mass transit. Meanwhile, people who need to get to work in a timely manor are the ones paying the price.
