CTA Fashion

CTA Fashion has evolved a lot in the last few years.

You have the purple puff pants

The classy short-shorts

And of course the fashionably European Capris

Generations of Entertainment

This is a rare picture indeed! An Amazon Kindle, a Book, a Cell phone, and if you look carefully, an Mp3 player on the gentleman in the back. People find all kinds of ways to help pass the long monotonous bus rides. Some read books, some listen to music, some text more than a fiend does dope. Others take pictures of strangers like Creep Megazords. Enjoy.

I saw this guy on the train once. I would have said something but I am pretty sure he was a Highlander.

YOUR AD on this Bench

I could say a lot of funny, emotional, political, or snarky things about this photo. Instead, I'll let it speak for itself.

What is it like on the CTA?

Some of you may be wondering, "Gee, can the CTA really be that bad?"

The answer is: Hell yes.

Not consistently of course. Sometimes you may encounter nearly empty busses or attractive girls with an open seat next to them, but these times are uncommon!

People on the CTA are normally extremely unfriendly. Call it Urban-Chicago culture, whatever. There are exceptions! Riding the Clark bus during drinking-nights around Wrigleyville is always a blast. Also, you may be propositioned for sex occasionally depending on your location. The CTA is fun for all ages!

An average CTA ride:

Stay Tuned as my travels bring me through commute hell!

Welcome to CTA Freaks!

What is CTA Freaks? A website dedicated to the lovely humans (Another other worldy creatures) of the Chicago Transit Authority busses and trains.
