Did You Know?
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.
Bike Rack Request
Does this ever happen to you?
You and your bike leave home ready and excited for the day, but when you get to work, you find yourself scrambling all over the block looking for a decent parking spot.
The closest racks have two or more bikes already locked to them, and all the signposts are taken.
If this sounds familiar, look no further.
The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) is taking bike rack requests. Just enter an address at the this link and CDOT bike program staff will survey the site for a bike rack. Happy locking!
