August was a relatively slow month for CTA news, but I did post more than the usual crazy commuting stories.
The month started with news that the CTA was expanding the number of sites where riders can access I-GO and Zipcar vehicles. Then Mayor Daley told us "we have a lot to learn" before hosting the 2016 Olympics after he rode a subway in Beijing.
I mostly ride the CTA rails, but I was visiting my Mom in the hospital in August when I truly discovered the beauty of CTA's Bus Tracker. Lovely.
On the crazy commuting tales front, we told you about the compulsively clean guy, andthe "2nd hand yak" on the Purple Line. Finally, I told you about what happens when the teenaged sobber meets the motorman's ire.
Be safe this New Year's Eve.
