The Chicago Transit Authority is launching a mystery-shopper program:
It's looking for riders on bus and L trains willing to report back on transit troubles in the same way some big stores send mystery shoppers around to quietly check up on things.
CTA bosses want riders to anonymously keep tabs on their commute, report what they saw and tell them what ought to be improved.
The pay's kinda lousy -- you get a $2 fare card if you're one of the first 1,000 riders to turn in a survey. But maybe helping improve service is enough reward for you.
