CTA's Holiday Homeless Harassment
During the past few weeks of waning daylight, waxing chill, and growing holiday spirit, the Chicago Transit Authority has been busy installing
NEW SIGNAGE at rail terminals on the CTA 'L'. The message on the signs--an example of which appears above--is clear, and a bit ominous: they demand an additional fare from any rider who wants to depart the terminal in the opposite direction from which they arrived. So don't miss your stop. If you smell bad they will think you are homeless and write you up! With the growing economic problems for our country, the number of homeless riding the buses and transit will only increase all over the country as people are looking for warmth.
