Did that guy end up getting paid for his bike after all? I re-read that article, it seemed that the CTA had a pretty blanket policy of non-liability at the time.

The lock is expressly prohibited; not sure about the bungee.
I don't remember specifics but I do recall that people have successfully had pay-outs for CTA-related claims (there was that story of the expensive road bike that fell off an express bus bouncing down LSD that was in the Reader a few years ago . . .)

Heather with the search chops!
I sent the guy an e-mail to ask if he ever got reimbursed in any way -- will report back if I get an answer.

The pains the guy in the article went through to collect money from the CTA is exactly why I'm glad I didnt have too. In fact, I was trying to think of a minimum level of damage where I would even submit a claim.
