if they want to give seniors free ride let them prove that they cannot afford it. stop raising my taxes I don't ride the cta let the riders pay. give me free gas and then i will agree to have the cta use the tax dollars for mass tranist.

God bless you, Governor. Some people I know outside of the USA say that Americans throw away our elderly. They say that we do not place any value on the poeple that built our country. I say this is a baby step, but a step in showing others that we do value our pioneers. Thank you!

The reduced fare cards for seniors,$.85 with 15 cents for two transfers is fair enough. I am a senior and I think this is more than fair. I can ride downtown, do my errands and return on the same fare card within two hours. Why do I think Elmer Fudd is using this to hold up the funding for the CTA? Just another ploy.
