Only 24 percent of jobs in the region are accessible by transit in 90 minutes or less by a typical resident — and that number drops to 12 percent in the suburbs.
Downtown Chicago is one of the largest central business districts in the world, with more than half a million people commuting to work in and around the Loop every day.
But the downtown area is also home to thousands of residents that are passionate about making it safe and easy to walk, bike, and use transit in their neighborhoods.
