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.

Chicagoland Bike Map makers coming to you!

We are loading up our panniers and headed to the suburbs to meet Active Trans members and get feedback about the regional bike map! We are working on an update that will be published in April 2010 and are eager to hear from people all around Chicagoland. Our suburban coordinators are hosting the meetings with local partners and the details are below.
