CTA is holding a hearing on its recently announced “de-crowding” plan 6 p.m. tonight at its headquarters downtown. (567 W. Lake St.) The plan—the first major restructuring of the transit system since 1997— would eliminate 12 underused bus routes and transfer the savings to adding train cars to every “L” route except the Yellow and Pink lines.
First off, sorry we didn't post this sooner.
Second, there is some potential changes to the Sloopers if the plan moves forward. Specifically the 129 bus route (see route in image) which takes people to and from the Metra stations as well as various places in the loop may be cut.
If anyone goes, let us know what you find out.
