CTA has no fare hikes in approved $1.8 billion 2023 budget

The budget invests in the CTA’s ‘Meeting the Moment’ action plan, which was introduced by the agency to address complaints about service, safety and cleanliness.

Still wild to me that LA pays 22hr vs 28hr for cta. How could you even survive in LA on 22hr

Help solve the budget: tax non owner occupied houses/​buildings. Too many people bought places just to rent out for an exorbitant amount of money in the last 3 years

Probably 95% of CTA riders would be willing to pay $0.50 more so that fares would keep up with inflation in order to restore the service cuts.

The budget includes an 3.5% increase in labor costs from last year as the agency plans to hire more bus operators to help reliability. Forty janitors will also be added to help clean trains and stations.

This sounds great, I wonder how it will fail this time.

The board also approved the CTA’s $3.4 billion capital improvement program for new and ongoing projects in the next five years, the most significant of which is the extension of the Red Line to 130th Street. The capital improvement program is separate from the agency’s operating budget.

This actually is a great plan that will help thousands of new riders, which in theory, should have a positive impact on safety.
