CTA Doomsday Schedule: Day 2

By Chuck Sudo in News on Feb 8, 2010 4:40PM


The Chicago Transit Authority's "Doomsday" schedule was implemented yesterday, but today is supposedly the day where riders will feel the cuts in service. I'm of the opinion CTA wasn't doing a bang-up job maintaining its bus routes and schedules when they had a full service schedule — a friend Saturday called CTA the "Chicago Tardiness Authority" — but I have to say that my trip from Bridgeport to my day job in Evanston was none the worse for wear. Now ask me again after the return trip home.

Let's call this post an open thread: if you took the bus or train to work, your health club, school, or just to run errands, how did the service cuts affect your transit or your planning?
