Bus Rapid Transit project presentation; Blago appoints new CTA board member
The CTA will make a presentation Thursday night on the next steps for the Bus Rapid Transit project. Thursday's presentation will be from 6 till 8 pm at the Near North Branch of the library, 310 W. Division.
At the Coffee with Ron last weekend, Huberman said he had just seen the new BRT buses. They have three large doors, where passengers pre-pay at the stop and then load en masse through the three doors. Prototype buses will be on the four BRT streets next summer -- Chicago Avenue, Halsted Street, Jeffery Boulevard, and 79th Street.

Sheila Nix, the former deputy governor, will replace Nicholas Zagotta. The governor gets to appoint three of the seven CTA board members. Daley appoints the other four.
