    How cable cars, busses, and trains changed the future of Chicago

    Speaker: Greg Borzo, author and cable car enthusiast
    Jon Hilkevitch, Chicago Tribune transportation editor

    This is a fascinating tale of Chicago's growth from the days of the first cable cars to today's proliferation of public transportation and concurrent rise in population. The spread of routes and coveyances makes it possible for adults over 65 to get anywhere within the city's borders for as little as $1.25, including one transfer. With Hilkevitch as moderator and Borzo providing historical context, you will find out who started it all and what their legacies are for today's commuters.
