A new round of cuts could be coming for the CTA, Metra and Pace because of the recession. When the Regional Transportation Authority board meets Thursday, it's expected to consider cuts totaling more than $61 million. The Tribune reports that transit officials blame a deepening drop in sales-tax revenues for the move.

The cuts would follow a round of belt tightening earlier this year, also because of a drop in tax revenues.
