West Loop to get new CTA train stop

August 25, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Mayor Richard Daley visited construction crews at the site at Morgan and Lake. The station will serve the Green and Pink lines starting in 2012.

The CTA may also get a fare system that lets customers pay with their cell phones.

The Chicago-Sun Times says riders would get a special computer chip installed in their smart phones. Passengers would then tap their phones on a touch pad, just as they do now with fare cards.
