CTA roundup: CTA pulls video game ad; another CTA photo blog; NYC crush site

Here's a quick roundup on some news and notes that don't merit a full post, but which you may find interesting.

  • The CTA last week pulled ads for Grand Theft Auto IV under pressure from Fox News. I find it amusing that Fox News is now the arbiter of good taste. Gimme a break. CTA Tattler commenters are already discussing this here.
  • Here's yet another CTA photo blog: R.O.C.K. on the C.T.A .
  • And here's a cool blog that has discovered the abandoned CTA.
  • The U.S. Public Interest Research Group announces a video contest. "We want you to create your most persuasive video about why we need more and better public transportation. What’s your vision of a 21st century transportation system?"
  • Here's the New York transit system's version of Missed Connections: Subway Crush.
  • Get some cool L stop buttons here.
  • And finally, check out these sneakers that represent all the train lines.

i was getting so stoked for some cool sneakers ... but they're ugly. :(

Not only that, you have to walk funny to get people to see the bottom of them, where the REAL action is

Ministry of Silly Walks, indeed!

Also...

"The U.S. Public Interest Research Group announces a video contest. "We want you to create your most persuasive video about why we need more and better public transportation. What’s your vision of a 21st century transportation system?"

Does anyone have cell phone video of the folks escaping from the Blue Line tunnel?

I noticed that they haven't removed the ads from the bus stop rolling signs yet. Interesting.
