BGA has CTA salary database
The average salary is $51,593. With a cursory look at salaries, it appears that the average bus and train operator earns about $50,000.
What others are making:
Ron Huberman, CTA President, $198,000.
Carole Brown, CTA board president: $50,000 (part-time).
Richard Daley, Mayor of Chicago, $216,210.
Todd Stroger, President, Cook County Board, $170,000.
As CEO of such a large government agency, I don't think Huberman (or Daley for that matter) is paid enough.
