From the Tribune:
"The CTA is set to receive $495.9 million to buy hybrid buses, overhaul existing buses, replace track on the Dan Ryan branch of the Red Line and make other renovations, officials said."
Transit Cash Halted: About $1 Billion Worth of Mass Transit Improvements May be in Jeopardy
After buying new buses, fixing existing ones, replacing track ... how much will be left over for "other renovations"?
* $50 million for Wilson Yard.
* $10 million for Truman College student parking.
* $100 thousand+ to move a tattoo shop.
* $0 for 46th Ward mass transit improvements.
