Remember the CTA's Brown Line experiment using cars with fewer seats that would allow more people onto each car? It seems, per the Trib's Jon Hilkevitch, the CTA deemed the project a "failure" and have quietly decided not to expand the experiment to other lines as originally planned. The cars that are on the Brown Line trains now - two per train - will remain.
