On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, we talked about the changes impacting riders of the CTA, including the Red Line south of Roosevelt being shut down until October 2013. There’s also a lot of changes around the new Ventra card, and the Jeffrey Jump (and early foray into high speed bus service). We also hear about proposed changes to bus service on 31st Street, that could impact residents in Bronzeville, Bridgeport, Armour Square, and Little Village.

Will all these changes amount to better, faster more reliable public transit in Chicago?

Joining us at the shop:
• Jon Hilkevitch, Transportation Reporter for the Chicago Tribune,

• Claudia Ayala, a Public Transit and Enviromental Justice activist with the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization.

• and Brenna Conway, Campaign Manager at the Active Transportation Alliance.

The Barber Shop Show airs live from Carter’s Barber Shop in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood on Fridays at Noon. 89.5fm (NWI/CHI) and 90.7fm (CHI).
