CTA, Metra and Pace resolve fight over federal COVID funding


Metra disputed that, but under a compromise deal unanimously ratified by the Regional Transportation Authority board today, it will get just about $10 million of the funds. CTA will receive the biggest share, just under $21 million, and Pace $9.3 million.

Overall, the CTA will receive $912 million in American Recovery Plan funds over the next three years, Metra $514 million and Pace $71 million.

All three transit operators are in different stages of recovering from the impact of COVID-19, but ridership and fare box income on all of them still are well below pre-pandemic levels.
