Chicago CTA to raise prices Monday on bus and rail passes & gouge your pockets even more to ride the most UNSAFE transit system in America


All types of CTA passes will go up in price Monday, and many regular riders will be doing the math to determine whether the pay-as-you-go fare or an unlimited-ride pass offers the better deal.
The increases in the one-day, three-day, seven-day and 30-day passes are expected to generate an additional $56 million a year for the transit agency, officials said.
But the price hikes, which CTA officials insist on calling reductions in the pass discount compared to the regular full base fare, are also projected to contribute to no growth in overall CTA ridership this year, the Regional Transportation Authority said.
CTA ridership has increased by more than 5 percent over the past 20 months, according to CTA records. Its most recent fare increase was in 2009.

hey where else can you get such an abundance of ambiance like going on safari
getting to see the creatures of chicago in their natural habitat
and their habits
people would gladly pay double to have such entertainment that Tiny and streetlightmarksman provide
you even get to see the endagered species known as the young black teenager at the rate they are going they just might be extinct

CTA=Communist Transportation Authority. Aren't you middle -Class Taxpayers happy to be pissing all your alreadily heavily taxed income to make it nicer for the Mutts like those in the picture to travel about on their important daily work routines? Thanks to Democrats, your children and grandchildren are already in debt so these Mutts can live free.

The very political Mutts who make the decision to raise your fares and allow stanky diseased Mutants to share the ride with you all have free government cars and free gas. Why should they care what you have to put up with. The Chicago Way.
