CTA... for free?

As wild of a dream as it sounds, there are city planners trying to figure out how to make the CTA free for all residents of our area.  

The idea came from a comment from Jahmal Cole, who founded My Block, My Hood, My City, at a brainstorming event hosted by the Metropolitan Planning Council as a way to make the city more accessible and equitable for every resident, not just those in certain areas.  

There are a lot of hurdles to overcome – namely money and laws that would need to change – but getting on CTA for free for more than just New Year’s Eve would be awesome!
