Typically, the CTA asks for your attention (please), but now you've got theirs. Hearings about the 2012 CTA budget—which calls for management reductions but no service cuts or fare hikes to close a $277 million shortfall—start this week. Riders will be able to voice their concerns about any transit issues to the CTA board on Wednesday at Westinghouse High School, 3223 W. Franklin Blvd. Two budget meetings are scheduled for next week. When fare hikes and service cuts are on the table, riders pack these meetings and protesters bang drums outside CTA headquarters on the Near West Side.

The CTA provides more than 1.7 million rides each weekday, and for the most part, these rides go smoothly. But occasionally they don't. Sometimes riders experience crimes, medical problems or equipment difficulties with their trains. Some of these incidents have occurred more regularly lately. Thefts and robberies on the system are on the rise compared with two years ago but have seen some decline this year, according to a recent Tribune report. Six riders died on CTA tracks by suicide or by accident in March and April alone - compared with nine of these deaths in all of 2011.
