    Re: citylab discussion, why wasn’t Joe taxpayer invited to the discussion? He is the only person that matters. A bureaucrat, a self interest group, and the competition have no one but themselves in mind, but are playing with taxpayer money. This never ends well.

    CTA needs to find a way to secure a reliable source of revenue as well as making it more attractive to users. Best way to do that is to start using congestion pricing on arterial roads. They would then receive money from the collected tolls from congestion pricing and also other modes of transport, personal vehicles and uber would become less attractive financially due to increase costs due to tolls. This in turn would also create greater ridership numbers on the CTA due to the shift in the transportation mode use to the CTA. It’s a win-win. Personal vehicles on the road is not sustainable from a capacity standpoint. Plus more vehicles off those roads will lead to faster and more efficient buses who use those roads.
