Lots of institutional knowledge of the CTA will walk away at the end of the year when three long-time employees retire.
The Sun-Times The Ride column reports (scroll to end of column) that CTA chief operating officer William R. Mooney had announced hs retirement earlier this year. And the vice president of transit operations, John Hruby, will be stepping down after 37 years with the agency.
Hruby, who has been on call 24/7 for the last 35 of his 37 years
with the transit agency, said he wanted to spend more time with his
family, including his elderly parents.
"This will be the first New Year's Eve I will be home instead of out
on the Rail & Bus system in I can't remember when," Hruby wrote in
Meanwhile, chief engineer Glenn Zika will take advantage of the CTA's early retirement program.
Hruby will not be replaced. Good luck, gentlemen, and thank you for your service
