UNIT 5: How CTA's One-Day Fare Hike Hurts the Poor

View more videos at:

[VIDEO] Carol Marin brought her cameras to a currency exchange at the corner of 79th & Cottage Grove to discuss the fare increases enacted by CTA. Well really these fare increases effects the various passes offered such as the one-day, seven-day, and 30-day passes. The prices for those passes were increased last month.

Basically the focus of this story is the one-day pass considered the cheapest option for CTA customers. It's considered cheaper than similar passes offered by other transit agencies around the nation.

Also who you see interviewed in this video is John Paul Jones who is listed here as part of the Sustainable Englewood Iniative. He's also part of an organization - Developing Communities Project - that wants to see the construction of the CTA Red Line to Altgeld Garden
