We're now in Day Three of the CTA services cuts. And we've endured at least one full work day of greater intervals between buses and trains.
So how did it go yesterday and today? This is an open thread to hear from y'all.
Personally, I didn't really notice any difference. But my commute is just one Red Line train fairly early in the rush hour. How about you folks who have to transfer and use buses?
For instance, my wife previously used the X80 Irving Park, which was one of the nine express bus routes eliminated. She said her commute was "teeth-grittingly irritating." She had to wait longer for the 80, and then endure stops at nearly every block. Her total commute -- from Cicero to the Red Line at Sheridan -- was about 20 minutes longer than usual. it usually takes her about 55 minutes on the bus and then the Red Line, but Monday it was an hour and 15 minutes.
