How COVID-19 affects transit

From what I heard on the news, the black community is getting hard with the Coronavirus. 68 percent of the deaths are among blacks. With crowding on the south side, CTA needs to send as many artics as they can to the black communities hit hard by this. Operators out there are in a dangerous situation. Be careful ladies and gentlemen, take precautions and wash your hands. 63rd is a busy route how has it been doing? I know there will be places that are hard to run artics like under the "L" pillars on 63rd. Maybe they need some red line shuttles for the busy stations along the red line. They could control how many board there by just taking off and supplementing whats out there. It's an idea anyway. Treat it like a school run with the schools being the red line stations.

Yes I agree, alot of the lakeshore service doesn't need artics anymore on the north side the loop is a ghost town and no longer a draw. Would it be too ridiculous to supply masks to the riders on the bus? This way everyone can be safe. CTA makes alot of money. I'm sure they are getting disaster funding, so why not? 70 percent less riders is how many riders?

I saw a video made  by someone who said a lit of cell towers are going up in the Black Community.   This is relevant because I have seen other videos saying the the rollout of 5G cell towers and 5G service is what's killing people.   The radiation from these signals is poisoning cells in humans.   The human body tries to rid the body of toxins.  The toxins secrete in the form of a virus.  This is relevant because the first massive rollout of 5G occurred in Wuhan China, where the so called coronavirus started.

Artics can run on 63rd St.  The L pillars are similar to the ones on Franklin  and the ones on Lake St between Clinton and the UP tracks.   They are not in the street but on the sidewalks.

I've heard this, one of the crazier conspiracy theories I've heard during this pandemic, and unfortunately one with real-world consquences, since workers have been harassed and attacked over these conspiracy theories.

Totally insane.  They actually burned a few 5G towers in Britain over the weekend.  Most of these asinine rumors appears to be a Russian disinformation campaign, just one more of their often successful attempts to destabilize Western societies!

I don't think it's a conspiracy theory.  Firstly, history has shown global pandemics related to technological advances but global leaders have assigned other names like spanish flu to cover up the actual source.  Secondly, the science of electromagnetic radiation is well documented.    

As for Russia,  my understanding is that only the military used 5G, thus no pandemic among civilians there.  I'm sure they wouldn't tell if it was adversely affecting their military.

As for the theory that it's designed to kill Blacks, I can't say that is true.  However,  given the percentage of Blacks killed by this pandemic. it makes me wonder if Black neighborhoods were targeted to erect these 5G towers.  Downers Grove and Lombard fought Verizon and, at least for now,  staved off the building of 5G towers in the western suburbs.  This tells me that these Black communities don't have the money,  the voice to stop this type of movement in their communities. 

The question is where are these towers in Chicago?  Are they really bunched in Black communities?  Towers should also be going up in downtown and ar the airports.   With that type of expansion,  other races have been and will be affected.   It's more about corporate greed and government impotence than racial genocide. I said government impotence because the FCC was aware of concerns about the high levels of electromagnetic radiation but is doing nothing.   That's why the companies are so eager to get those towers up.  The more built, the less likely the government will interfere.

So much for Cincinnati and their free bus rides. Metro is resuming fare collection at the end of the week. They are installing shields to protect the operators, though.

I don't know how a transit system survives without fare collection unless the system is fully subsidized.    Shields will protect drivers from germs from others.
