The RTA and other transit agencies essentially waved a white towel Thursday, and announced they would let seniors ride free while they continue to educate them on the new reduced fare program.
“We will continue to have information specialists out on the street today, tomorrow and next week to make sure senior riders are familiar with the new procedure and to provide them with appropriate information and assistance when needed,” CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski said in a Tribune story.
No date was given for how long the brief "transition" period would last, but probably not for more than a week.
We reported earlier about the problem the RTA has had with communicating about the change from free rides to reduced rides.
And to all you seniors: If you have the senior reduced fare pass, the CTA and other agencies would appreciate it if you used it.
