Looking back, I have to admit it was well-played. He was a young guy, mildly scruffy but not remarkably so. He approached almost apologetically on the "L" platform, holding out a train schedule and handwritten directions about transportation to Indiana....
A public hearing will be held Monday night about an upcoming fare-payment system that offers new options for CTA and Pace customers, but also contains costly penalties — most notably a $3 cash CTA rail fare — that transit riders can avoid,...
