The Regional Transportation Authority will meet Monday morning on the mass transit bailout bill approved earlier this month. In a formality, the RTA board is expected to vote on implementing the legislation which includes the governor's plan of giving senior citizens free rides on buses and trains.

The legislation also increases the sales tax in Cook and the collar counties and the real estate transfer tax in the city.
