Sweater #37


Finally, a sweater on CTA.  Ideally, one would be placed on each leg of a line such as the O’hare bound segment of the Blue line or the Howard bound segment on the Red line as many riders are habitual and only take one portion of a line.  Public transit is an amazing place to witness humanity in all forms, and CTA is no different.  Riders have many colorful stories of inebriated passengers, solicitors, street people, famous people (including Santa Claus!), etc. join them on rides throughout the city.  The train and bus become a very democratic place at times and is often the link between communities. Hopefully, this sweater will become a symbol of that connection.
