Any CTA fare hike could hurt ridership, advocates say

A rider waits to board a westbound bus near the CTA Blue Line station on Chicago Avenue near Milwaukee Avenue on Oct. 31, 2017.

    Any CTA fare hike could hurt ridership, advocates say
    It looks likely that the CTA will include a fare hike in its proposed budget next week to make up for a loss in state funding. It's unknown what an increase might look like - if it would be for all types of rides, or rail only, or for regular fares but not passes.

    Michael Zerang and Jim Baker, two indefatigable titans of Chicago's improvised music community, celebrate 35 years of collaboration
    The backbone of Chicago's illustrious history of improvised music is made up of a small handful of indefatigable players who endlessly explore and play gigs-sometimes for just a handful of folks-but few have been as long devoted to spontaneous experimentation as keyboardist Jim Baker and percussionist Michael Zerang.
