Riders for Better Transit statement on CTA 2013 budget and fare hikes
CHICAGO, Nov. 20, 2012 – Every year it seems Chicagoland transit riders get less transit service for our money. The CTA today released its proposed 2013 budget, proposing another fare increase for transit riders next year. This closely follows Metra’s proposal to increase fares for 2013.
Service cuts and fare increases have become a regular tradition, making it more difficult and more expensive for people to get around. Demand for transit has been increasing for years, and people want better transit service. Transit in our region needs to stop moving backwards. Riders for Better Transit encourages Chicagoland residents to tell their elected leaders that it’s time to stop the cuts and fare hikes and invest in moving transit forward.
Transit riders can take action by sending letters to elected officials at: www.activetrans.org/bettertransit
Can you imagine what the Chicagoland area would look like if Metra, Pace and CTA all suddenly disappeared?
On Monday, Nov. 5, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) will close the Wells Street bridge over the Chicago River for a year for a major reconstruction project.
Over the summer, Metra invited riders to review its strategic plan at a series of open houses.
