On The CTA

In The CTA 2013-10-13 1

Chicago has a pretty good public transit system. The CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) trains run in a hub and spoke pattern, in and out of the the famous Loop downtown. Mrs. C and I are supporters of public transportation but it was a bit of a schlepp to get from our hotel on Michigan Avenue back to the Loop and out again to O'Hare Airport.

Most of the system is elevated above ground (hence The L) but there are parts underground. The first shot was taken at the Blue Line stop at Lake Street. Several stops later I got the second shot on my phone of two of the runners.

Bottom, what Jon Stewart on The Daily Show calls your moment of zen. Red Line, Chicago Avenue stop.
