According to an announcement made to the Transportation and Security Advisory Board (TSAB), the University of Chicago will discontinue its partnership with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) this August.

In order to replace student transportation provided by the CTA 170, 171, and 172 routes, the University is in the process of searching for new transportation vendors. Although specific reasons were not provided at the TSAB meeting, the discontinuation of the partnership is said to be due to financial concerns, according to one student TSAB member.

The TSAB is a student advisory board comprised of three students appointed by SG and three students appointed by the Inter-House Council (IHC). The board meets twice a quarter to discuss issues regarding transportation and security on campus.
