Chicago Transit Board Selects Reduced Service Plan

The Chicago Transit Board approved a plan for reduced service and increased fares for cash customers and rail customers who pay with a transit card. The changes will be effective July 17. The Board approved a hybrid plan that was developed from the five service scenarios that had been proposed. The plan combines elements of the Modified Sunday Schedule scenario and the Fare Increase scenario and retains overnight service.
