Mayor Emanuel defends CTA fare hikes

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Mayor Emanuel has a message for Chicagoans upset over fare hikes on the CTA: If you don't like it, you don't have to ride.

The mayor defended the fare increases on Monday, saying commuters always have the option to drive.

But Emanuel said even though the cost of most passes is going up, the CTA base fare is staying the same.

The CTA's 2013 budget includes big increases in the price of most multi-day passes.
