Fare Follies

CTA president Ron Huberman says more fare hikes may be on the way in part due to the revenue lost by giving seniors free rides, which he says has turned out to be “a pretty expensive venture.”

If we can’t recall Gov. Blagojevich, can we just recall his inane policy decrees?

Meanwhile, Huberman says the CTA is in discussions to build an El station inside a grocery store. He won’t say which one, but I’m guessing it’s a place that sells medical supplies and flashlights.

    The only location I can think of that could have both a grocery & L station is Wilson.
    There once was a grocery at the south end of the Wilson station building in the 60s & 70s.
