HUB-WIDE—So you want late-night T service, do ya, local colleges and universities? Pay for it: "The idea, based on the Chicago Transit Authority's U-Pass program, requires that participating colleges and universities buy unlimited-use subway and bus passes for no less than 100 percent of their students. The passes would be discounted more deeply than the T's current college pass program, which provides a flat 11 percent discount rate to students who opt in." [Boston.com]
