CTA ex-offender program offering apprenticeships
March 6, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The Chicago Transit Authority plans to hire more ex-offenders.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and CTA President Forrest Claypool were scheduled to kick off an expansion of the program that gives ex-offenders a second chance with rail and bus apprenticeships Wednesday.

Under the expanded program, bus apprenticeships will last up to a year while rail assignments will continue for nine months.

High-performing apprentices will be eligible to apply for full-time CTA positions.

As many as 200 bus positions will be included in the program along with 65 rail slots.
