CTA Blue Line / Egregious service

1 United States

Scarcely a day goes by where there isn't a delay on the CTA's Blue Line (probably other lines too). Today, Feb 20, 2007, approx 8:30 AM, there was a defective Loopbound train at Chicago and Grand backing up trains to O'Hare. There was close to a 30 minute delay before the trains were moving normally. Last week I was on a defective Loopbbound AM train at Irving Park that had to be evacuated before trains could move . That delay lasted 40 minutes. Even when these long delays don't occur there are usually short delays, 3 - 5 minutes, because of signal problems, equipment problems - you name it - which add up to 10 - 20 minute delays for the commute. There is also a slow zone between Division - Ashland and Clark - Lake where the train slows down to 6 mph. Someone should be held accountable for this egregious service. Perhaps Mayor Daley would go to bat for the harried commuter. If he did, I'm sure matters would improve.
