FTA tells Chicago Transit to change mileage claims

Posted on October 23, 2012

NEW YORK — The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) said that the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) collected more federal aid than it should have after inflating mileage covered by its bus routes, according to Bloomberg.

The FTA ordered the transit agency to revise its 2011 tally of revenue-producing miles, which helps determine U.S. funding, and to change the way it counts mileage from now on. FTA Administrator Peter Rogoff said in a statement that the “FTA has no indication that the CTA used any of the formula funds for anything other than eligible purposes.”

Spurring the order was a recent report from Cause of Action, a Washington, D.C.-based research organization, which suggested the CTA over reported its bus mileage. For the full story, click here.
