As we learned in April, perhaps the biggest challenge facing Mayor Daley once he vacates City Hall is going to be driving himself around. What will he think when he has to empty his pockets for a meter spot?

Or will he start riding the CTA?

Reader contributor Ed Zotti, who wrote an epic and insightful piece on the challenges and future of the el in March, joined Tribune transportation columnist Jon Hilkevitch on Ken Davis’s Chicago Newsroom show on CAN TV this week.

Among the topics discussed: the lack of state and federal funding available to Chicago, gross el stops, shaky bridges, CTA chief Forrest Claypool’s steep learning curve, and what kind of infrastructure is needed to improve rail transit in Chicago.
