More people rode the CTA's el trains, subways, and buses in 2007 than in any year since 1992.

The transit agency says it provided 500 million rides in 2007, which is an increase of 4.7 million rides over the year 2006.

The statistics have come days after state legislators passed a funding bill for public transit which prevented so-called 'doomsday' cuts to services for the CTA.
