CTA President Ron Huberman detailed the CTA's contingency plan to balance its budget without new state funding.
- The CTA would get rid of the Yellow Line and Purple Line express routes, 63 bus routes and about 840 employees.
- The agency would also roll out a new fare structure that would cost commuters more for traveling during rush hour.
A summary of the proposed changes is on our website.

Do you agree with riders who think this is a bluff, or are you frantically writing letters to your legislators, begging them to save the city's public transit?
