Dozens of CTA workers are likely to lose their jobs as the board aims to save money.

A total of 149 positions will be cut. Most of the positions are in management and administration.

Union members will be offered opportunities to switch to different positions.

The new Ventra fare payment system eliminates many jobs related to fare collection.
