CTA Plans Fare Increase

The CTA announced today that it plans to raise fares to as much as $2.25, while also eliminating any bonus to Chicago Card holders as well as raising the monthly pass price to $90 as part of its 2009 budget. Mayor Richard Daley did not OK the proposed fare hike or 2009 budget, but did say that his administration is “looking closely at it.” Chicago Card holders, which mostly reside on the North Side, are expected to be the hardest hit.
