  • Anyone here against the Skokie Swift (Yellow Line) extension to Old Orchard?

    I've herd they are thinking of it again and are holding a meeting about it http://www.transitchicago.com/news/ctaandpress.wu?... to me it's great. It would be so much easy for me to get there and I just like the Idea of it. I can’t real think of a down side to it because you trip from Dempster would be no longer of a trip then it is now. I know it would take at lest 2 Years to move from Ideas to paper to building.

    P.S. isn't it nice that it's running weekends now

  • Could a merger of___&___ saved the two railroads?

    the CNW (Chicago North Western) and the Milwaukee Road both are no more. (fallen flags) I wounder if a merger of the CNW and Milwaukee or a bought out of Milwaukee by CNW. could have saved the Milwaukee Road and make them a big player today with high Intermodal traffic from the west.

    I am just wounder if I mean no disrespect to Milwaukee Road I just like to think of what could have been.

    could it have worked or not. Why?

  • Opinion should Senior Ride Free on CTA?

    It looks set that CTA will have to accept the Free Ride to seniors for money but is it a good Idea. My feeling is that it is a good Idea nice thought but I heard that it will cost the cta and rest of RTA $20 million a year for this. And seniors already have half off. And my fear is that cta will go back into a hole because state will not willing to give much more money to public transportation.
