13 days until Doomsday…RTA Doomsday, that is

From the State of Illinois’ website:

On January 20, the CTA, Metra and Pace plan to implement dramatic service cuts, fare increases, and layoffs if no long-term funding solution is passed by the Illinois General Assembly.
Join the Governor’s fight to protect mass transit service. Send a message to your legislators today about how a transit doomsday could impact you and why a solution needs to be passed now.

You can send a message to your elected officials via the provided contact form. As with many such things, it’s likely that the funding will be supported by a tax hike – in this case, a 0.25% hike in the sales tax.

These guys have got to figure something out soon. Congestion, gas prices and population growth are squeezing the roads. Chicagoans need as many efficient transportation options as possible.
