    re: Belmont Blue Renovation

    “CTA also will test prepaid boarding for trains and buses at the new station, the first station to try out the technology, officials said.”

    Aren’t all trains already prepaid boarding…?

    Sort of excited about the Valparaiso airport shuttle. Excited overall that car free or car lite folks have more options. Traveling to the airport is a bit out of my way CTA wise I’m excited to have some sort of option to get to Valparaiso via public transit. I bet it could cut down on my Lyft expense next time I visit Lake o the Woods and it eliminates the need to rent a car.
