Did You Know?

Chicago’s first protected bike lane on Kinzie St. increased ridership by 55 percent without increasing traffic congestion for cars.

Active transportation gets easier in the 25th Ward

Thank you Alderman Solis for requesting 39 new bicycle racks for Chicago's 25th Ward!

All of these bike racks are scheduled to be installed before the end of the year (see below for the list). If you would like to request additional bike racks in the 25th Ward, you can do so online.

In addition to the new bike racks, the 25th Ward is also getting four LED CTA Bus Tracker signs installed!

CTA is unveiling the first 150 LED signs that will be installed at select bus shelters throughout the city. The signs will provide customers with estimated arrival times via CTA Bus Tracker for the next four buses serving the particular location.

Installation of the signs begins later this month and will continue through early next year. Bus shelters featuring the new LED signs will display four lines of text with arrival information specific to the location of the bus stop.

The locations in the 25th Ward are:
Western & Roosevelt (Northbound)
Western & Cermak (Southbound & Northbound)
Roosevelt & Halsted (Eastbound)

A complete list of the bus shelter locations will be posted on the CTA web site, with the first 150 sites to be listed immediately.
