Rauner's transportation budget: Bikers up, transit down
Mar 2, 2015 6:39 PM - Disabled transit riders are losers but motorcycle riders are winners in the proposed budget by Gov. Bruce Rauner, a Harley enthusiast. The fiscal plan would chop about $8.5 million for paratransit and increase funding for free motorcycle safety classes by $633,000. The budget also recommends significant cuts to Pace, Metra and the CTA while bumping up revenues for highways and roads.
