Transit problems elsewhere

Lest anyone think our transit turmoil is unique. Here is an article from yesterday about the crises in the Chicago Mass Transit Authority. While a lot of that seems to be about their rail infrastructure which may not apply here directly. The fundamental issue is much the same: where will the $ come from to keep the system running? Consider that Chicago has these problems despite soaring ridership, the same can't be said for ridership locally. Nonetheless their numbers are staggering and put PAT's deficits, operational or capital, to shame.
