'RedEye's' Tracy Swartz rode all 139 routes on the CTA bus system.

Everyday, the Chicago Transit Authority's mission is to get commuters from Point A to Point B, but riders pick up some good and bad anecdotes along the way. Imagine riding all 139 routes on the CTA bus system. That is exactly what RedEye Going Public reporter Tracy Swartz did over a more than two year span. She documents her travels in the article "Memoirs of a CTA Warrior." She told Tony Sarabia some stories from her journey.
