U.N. officials have approved the relocation of a U.K.-based operator to run the CTA’s network from Chicago to New York City.
The U.P.T.T., which operates bus routes from New York to London, will be operated by CTA subsidiary Drexel University.
A Drexell spokesperson said the company is not responsible for the CTSC system.
“The decision was made in consultation with U.UK.
The operator has agreed to relocate the company to its current premises in Chicago,” the spokesperson said.
CTA officials said the move is part of the CTCA modernization plan and was “in accordance with the agreement that was reached with UUK prior to the U.A.E. referendum.”
The decision was also supported by Drexelle and other stakeholders.
“We support the UCPT as a reliable, reliable, efficient and resilient transit operator,” Drexella spokesperson Andrew R. Fenton said in a statement.
The move follows a series of high-profile crashes and incidents that have resulted in hundreds of passengers and crew members being injured in recent years.
Last month, a driver who allegedly swerved into a bus near the intersection of State Street and West Van Buren Avenue on the Cuyahoga River in Chicago, hit a pedestrian and killed a young boy.
The man was taken into custody on suspicion of vehicular homicide.
Last week, a CTA driver was arrested on suspicion that he swerved through a stop sign and hit a cyclist on the Dan Ryan Expressway near the University of Chicago campus.
