Don't think so.If he's referring to just Metra, fares are a slight majority. Ditto with the CTA overall

Operations and Ridership Data

How does Metra manage to have the same farebox recovery as the LIRR despite fares that maybe 40% cheaper?

Anyone know the answer to this one: a town can build a parking lot at its train station and prohibit or charge higher fees for out of town users. But not if federal funds are used. Is it also true that if federal funds are used to build a rail line they cannot charge higher rates for nonresidents? Of course they can charge higher rates for going to the airport, knowing that mostly visitors pay it.
