CHICAGO (CBS) — The draconian cut in state aid to the CTA proposed in Gov. Bruce Rauner’s budget might be even bigger than first thought.
CTA President Forrest Claypool said Wednesday that “it looks as if it’s higher” than the $105 million initially calculated by the Regional Transportation Authority, with cuts at Pace and Metra totaling another $25 million.
“There’s been some confusion about that in the initial numbers that have come out and in what was reported,” Claypool said. “So I think it’s important just to establish what they’re actually proposing, which I think we’ll actually know with certainty.”
