Thanks goodness the CTA is taking out a few bus stops

I'm on the 36 and learned the Dearborn Street bus stops at Kinzie and Hubbard are both getting eliminated in favor or a new single stop at the street between them: Illinois. This is good. We have way too many bus stops in Chicago. They keep traffic slow, make a bus trip far too long and raise costs since labor is the biggest cost driver (so to speak) for transit agencies. We should get rid of any bus stop that is less than two blocks away from another stop, especially since we're broke.
