Greg Hinz: Quinn signs bill promising 'universal fare card,' free WiFi on CTA, Metra and Pace

I can only wonder how this universal fare card will be able to manage between the different fare systems of CTA, Pace, or even Metra. I can see how important this is for those who takes the Pace bus into say 95th Street then continue their rides on the CTA Red Line. Or perhaps even those students at Chicago State who may utilize the Metra Electric Line station near 95th & Cottage Grove.

BTW, I wonder what's the purpose of forcing the transit agencies under the Regional Transportation Authority to provide Wi-Fi on all of their vehicles that are either buses or trains?

Anyway this bill was signed into law yesterday by Gov. Quinn read more at Crain's columnist Greg Hinz's blog.
