Share your three-track hell alternatives
So, it really hasn't been too bad on the Red, Brown and Purple Lines north from Armitage through Belmont since the three-track project started this week.
But that doesn't mean things won't get worse.
I'm still convinced that when Spring Break ends and students return next week, things will be much worse. After all the Sun-Times reported: "When students and teachers return next week from the Chicago Public Schools spring break, the CTA expects 20,000 additional daily riders on the L and 125,000 more on the buses."
So I know I'll be trying various alternatives over the next few weeks on my commute to the Far North Side. And I promise to let you know how they work out.
In the meantime, you should share with us your experience with alternatives to the "three-track hell" -- whether you use CTA buses, the Metra, or some other means of conveyance. Comment on this post and I'll post the best for readers.
Carole reads the Tattler: CTA Chairwoman Carole Brown tips her hat to the CTA Tattler on her own blog -- "Kevin at CTA Tattler, who was at the meeting, said "Hell commences Monday," and I can't say I disagree." As I've said before, I like Carol a lot. She listens to us commuters, rather than being a "yes woman" for Kruesi.
