NEAR WEST SIDE — The Chicago Transit Authority president promised there won't be fare increases or service cuts in 2014 as he rolled out a $1.38 billion budget proposal on Friday.
"I'm pleased to announce that CTA has a balanced budget with no fare increases and no service reductions," Forrest Claypool said at a news conference in CTA Headquarters, 567 W. Lake St.
Claypool said the agency will continue funding construction and renovations in 2014 through the $4 billion capital investment plan that began in 2011.
