Tom Kaeser in ten page letter sent to the CTA: (pdf)
"When further multiplied by a factor of 1.25 passengers per vehicle, we find that roughly 400,000 non-bus passengers per day may be using Ashland, an impressive number compared to the CTA Route 9 ridership of roughly 31,000 per day."
A number way beyond the 50,000 that I used in the previous post.

It would mean that on a per capita basis 93% of the users of Ashland would get 61% of the street while 7% of the users would get 39% of the street. Is that fair? Don't go away. There is another way of looking at it that I will discuss, soon, I hope.
