Dead Ride for Free
A joint investigation by FOX Chicago News and the Better Government Association has uncovered widespread fraud and abuse in the "seniors ride free" program -- including numerous cases where free passes continue to be used on trains and buses long after the registered cardholder died.
RTA spokesperson Diane Palmer says the agency recently completed a review of more than 400,000 seniors ride free cards. And found 3,000 of the cardholders had died.
