If you want to advance your political viewpoints on the CTA, too bad.

If you want to advance your political viewpoints on the CTA, too bad. “CTA trains and buses are not public forums for debate.”

My understanding is that courts have decreed the highest form of speech is political speech.

Now the Chicago Transit Authority has banned political speech from the ads on and in its buses.

If one were challenging authority, might advertising placards on the CTA be an effective advertising tool?

Don’t expect to see an ACLU suit on this issue.
