Civic Federation Urges Immediate State Action on CTA Funding

May 26, 2005

The Civic Federation supports HB 1663 as an important first step toward resolving the CTA's financial crisis, but continues to call for a CTA fare increase and supplemental state funding to bridge the agency's immediate deficit and avert service cuts. It urges the General Assembly to take action on long-term review of the RTA funding formula.
