Derwood: The CTA has to have cut about 75% of their work force in the past 20 years. When I was in Chicago going to college (mid-90's), every train had a "driver", plus another person collecting tokens/transfers and operating the doors. They also had actual ticket/token booths with real people. now they've cut the booths (for automated machines), and I'm pretty sure the driver is the only person on each train.
ManRay: We have driverless trains in ATL. Maybe O'Hare would like to look into those after this?
