In a recent interview in Redeye, Claypool discussed how the CTA is trying to prevent fare hikes and service cuts, while increasing security and improving the CTA experience.

In another recent interview with Claypool posted on the CTA Tattler, he said that Bus Rapid Transit  could happen on Western Ave. Claypool said Western Ave. would be good candidate for BRT because it would connect so many CTA rail stations.
