    Metra and CTA getting into a pissing match the #33 bus route is ridiculous. CTA takes their ball and goes home, Metra shrugs, and meanwhile the transit riders who fund the greatest share of operations get screwed. RTA should have some kind of arbitration for these disputes. Or CTA and Metra leaders could repeat kindergarten and learn how to play nicely together.
