My favorite car is the CTA train

Orange shoes

What’s your favorite car ever? The Chicago Tribune asked this question on Google Plus.

My favorite car ever is the traditional 3200-series CTA train cars. I’m not even joking.

  1. There’s plenty of room.
  2. Lots of headroom, you can even stand!
  3. Always a chauffeur to drive.
  4. No maintenance or upkeep.
  5. No gas.
  6. Community-based.
  7. You get to float above rooftops.

You may think I’m being some wise-guy. But I’m quite serious. We should really consider public transit as another form of travel on equal standing with the automobile. For many thousands of people in Chicago, the train is their car.

We should consider it a BETTER form of travel, not just equal.

I don’t have any stats to back this up, but an argument can be made that they’re safer in terms of getting into accidents with other vehicles.
