RTA chief details issues with 3 transit agencies

CHICAGO – The chairman of the Regional Transportation Authority has called for more reforms at the three Chicago area public transportation agencies it oversees, pointing out problems with efficiency and purchasing.

RTA chairman John Gates wrote a letter to elected officials detailing the problems at Metra, Pace and the Chicago Transit Authority, according to a story in Sunday’s Daily Herald. The letter, addressed to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel among others, comes as Metra has been plagued by a hiring scandal and Gov. Pat Quinn has formed a task force to suggest reforms.

“The service boards operate in silos and are unaware of what the others are currently purchasing,” Gates wrote in the letter dated Saturday.
