While some CTA riders said it appeared service was slower than usual on the Presidents Day holiday, CTA officials reported seeing no signs of a work slowdown that the chief of the bus drivers union threatened over the weekend.
"Something's going on. I've been here almost 20 minutes, and the Bus Tracker says the next two buses are delayed,'' said Simone Ford, who waited at Wacker Drive and Michigan Avenue for a No. 6 Jackson Park Express bus about 3:25 p.m.
[...] Everything that was running 15 to 20 minutes apart at mid-day before the (service) cuts is now at 25- to- 35-minute intervals,'' said the driver, who declined to provide his name when a Tribune reporter following Ford started asking questions.
