Top Tattler Tales of 2008: November - Bus Tracker complaints, three-track progress, and Barack elected
Early in November I gave an update on the three-track project, and later in the month reported that all four tracks were open at Fullerton. As we were anticipating the CTA board to approve fare hikes, we learned they had to put off the vote by a day due to improper advance notice of the meeting. The next day, they did the dirty deed, though the board voted to roll back the increases on passes by a bit.
With the election of hometown hero Barack Obama as president in early November, we wondered what effect it would have on the CTA. And we heard about transit systems being adversely affected by the financial meltdown.
