A a a i i for years the Illinois Central has been proud to operate a suburban service that Many people Call the Best in he world. To keep it this Way we Are continually striving to improve the service and make it attractive to our patrons. During this period our costs have continued to move upward. While a greater portion of our patrons use morning and evening suburban service to and from work we realize that there Are Many More people who could use the service during the Day when trains Are lightly loaded. We Are therefore proposing to initiate a shoppers ticket plan which we Hope will Appeal to Many for daytime trips to and from the Loop. We Hope that this will tend to improve our business during non Rush Auto doctor jewelry we can help you pay these Bills Hospital to amp i i tuition furniture clothing credit Union appliances Loans mortgage bring in your payment books we will do the rest family credit adjustment co. 7434 s.

New plan for shoppers beginning june i we will put into effect a schedule of Low Cost round trip shopper fares Good on All trains arriving at Randolph Street after 9 30 . And leaving Randolph Street before 4 00 . Monday through saturday. The saving to shoppers will be considerable. We Hope that Many of you and your families will try this service and use it again and again. Sample shopper fares Are listed below. The Story of our Cost although we Are hopeful that our shoppers fares will attract some new Revenue we still have problems created by rising expenses. Since we last asked for an increase in suburban fares wage rates and payroll tax rates have both gone up. So have prices of materials and supplies. In this period there have been seven changes in wage rates and fringe benefits All upward. Wage rates have jumped a total of 26 cents an hour increasing the Cost of our 1961 operations More than half a million dollars above what these costs would have been. Payroll tax rate changes and increased material expenses during the same period will increase our 1961 costs by about $170,000. All together the expense of operating our suburban service this year compared to what it would otherwise have been will be up More than $700,000. Ifs better to plug a Small leak you May say this Isnit much Money to a comparison of present and proposed fares big Railroad like the Illinois Central. But when we Are trying to maintain a High level suburban service and have already pared our expenses to the Bone we can to continue to absorb added expense. To us plugging a relatively Small Hole in the levee make better sense than waiting until the whole levee washes away. In most stores when prices change new tags go up on the shelves or Are attached to he merchandise. Hardly anybody asks Why. But with our suburban service its different. Its tradition with us to take our friends into our Confidence. Keeping our service running those who know us Are aware that we think a Long time before reaching a decision to increase suburban fares. Hundreds of thousands of you and even entire communities depend on us to reach the downtown area. Only suburban service like ours keeps other arteries of travel from choking up. We re lighting to keep the City from strangling on its own traffic. We Are sure most of you can see our reason for a modest increase in fares and the Price of Illinois Central electric transportation will continue to be a great bargain. Compare it with private travel by automobile. Compare the time saving Loo. The increase in suburban fares is just enough to cover increased expenses no More. Rightfully we should establish fares High enough to make a fair and reasonable profit. Despite this we Are planning Only a Rock Bottom increase effective june i. From the schedule of fares shown you will see that the new charges will not be a Burden on your family budget. The actual increase is Only 8.2 per cent. On multiple ride and commutation tickets this amounts to Only a few pennies a ride.
