CTA President Richard Rodriguez on Budget Woes

For years now, the Chicago Transit Authority has threatened “Doomsday” service cuts only to be saved at the 11th hour by state funding. If ever there was a CTA doomsday, this Sunday may be it. The agency is cutting 9 express bus routes and reducing the frequency or hours of service of nearly every other bus and train. Add to that threats of a union strike and the future looks gloomy for the CTA and its customers. CTA President Richard Rodriguez discusses what's in store.
