Objections to CTA’s crowd reduction plan

At a public hearing, the CTA’s plan to reduce overcrowding was criticized by some as nothing more than a plan by the CTA board to decrease bus routes to some areas.  Those opposed to the plan say that seniors, poor individuals and the disabled will be hurt the most because the plan calls for eliminating much needed routes in favor of increasing service to areas that see a higher rate of use.

The plan is based on an analysis by Northwestern University.  Opponents of the plan argue that the CTA is not taking into consideration the needs of residents.  For more details on the public hearing, read, “CTA’s crowding-reduction strategy blasted at public hearing.”
