The CTA could soon do away with all pay phones on their train platforms and bus enclosures. That's according to a letter the transit agency reportedly sent to the payphone operating company.

The pay phone service contract with CTA reportedly expired back in April.

There are about 160 pay phones on CTA property where 1 million calls are made each year.
