Action Alert: End the cycle of transit service cuts and fare increases!

Metra has proposed raising fares 25 percent in their 2012 budget, and the CTA is expected to propose fare increases and service cuts in coming days as well.

Sadly, this has become an annual tradition in the Chicago region because transit is significantly under funded.

Take action today! Click here to tell your elected leaders to end the cycle of service cuts and fare increases by boosting investment in transit!
