    click to enlarge Courtesy Chicago Transit Authority Chicago's el system, with its iconic train cars, relatively fast speeds, and occasionally breathtaking views, is the sexier side of the CTA.

    "Let's hope the city can get its act together and figure out how to put at least one of these measures in place." - none of the options you mention would address the long commute on 87th. How does this compare with someone who lives on the west side of Belmont Ave and needs to go to the east end? Same story. Or needs to travel from the north end of Harlem Ave and go all the way south?
