Polite motorman makes for pleasant CTA ride
A pleasant motorman on Red Line run 816 last week made the ride to work a little more bearable.
He reminded people to give up seats to the "handicapped and pregnant woman, and any man who looks real tired. We're all family here people, so let's treat each other right."
A minute later he said: "This is your train, I'm just the chauffeur."
He was chatty throughout the ride, but not in an obnoxious way. As we got toward the Loop, he reminded people by the doors to step off the train to let passengers exit more easily.
And they did!
It was actually a pleasant CTA riding experience.
