CTA plan: Priority lanes for some Loop buses - Let's see here, they expanded the width of the bike lanes, now lanes just for CTA Buses because traffic sucks so bad... I guess the cars will now have to drive on the sidewalks!


The Chicago Department of Transportation and the Chicago Transit Authority released a plan Wednesday for Bus Rapid Transit that could save commuters in the Central Loop three to nine minutes on each trip, CTA spokeswoman Lambrini Lukidis said.

The system is scheduled to begin service in 2014.

“This means more-efficient travel,” Lukidis said. “That was definitely a consideration.”

The Central Loop transit corridor would include bus-priority lanes on two miles of streets on east-west Madison and Washington streets and north-south Canal and Clinton streets.

The system will serve Union Station, Ogilvie Transportation Center, CTA subways and Navy Pier.

More than 1,700 buses are expected to use the corridor every day, carrying more than 47 percent of commuters traveling on those routes, according to CDOT and the CTA.

CTA=Catering To Africans

Get the niggers off the public transportation system and whites might actually use it.

More bus lanes? Why is it more important for poor people to get somewhere faster?

Heaven forbid they are late to reload the link card, or get that free sail phone. Maybe they'll be going to school. Millions will be spent to shave 9 minutes off a commute big deal. Let's do like Africa where niggers would be barred from downtown during certain times.

The eventual plan is to have one lane of traffic on each road for cars. Congestion will be unlike anything we've ever seen before.

Rahm along with the communist-funded "Active Transportation Alliance" will call that progress.

With all the license fees, city sticker fee, and all the taxes we pay on gas why are we put to the back of the line to drive our vehicles in this city. Bike riders don't pay a fucking dime to use our streets and they contantly disobey traffic laws and never get a citation.

Nothing new. Used to do it all the time in 005 & 007. Dude would look both ways upon opening his front door.004 was a little tricky with the elevated sidewalks on Houston Ave., but it was still done.
