Fare hikes and cancelled bus routes were the focus of Monday night’s public hearing on the CTA’s proposed 2013 budget.

The majority of the almost 200 people who attended were calling on board members to reverse an earlier decision to shorten the number 11 bus route.

The CTA’s budget for next year erases a projected deficit by raising fares a total of $56 million dollars.

It also introduces $60 million dollars in savings from labor unions and more than $50 million in management cuts and reforms.
