Crain's op-ed: Rauner's budget to run transit off the rails

Our Executive Director Ron Burke has a strong op-ed in today's Crain's Chicago Business about Governor Rauner's proposed transit cuts:

With more Chicagoans of all ages choosing to ride transit every year, we should be investing more to build a transit system that better serves our neighborhoods and connects people to job centers in the city and suburbs, rather than slashing funding for an already underfunded system.

Read and share Ron's op-ed with your network.

Then take action against the cuts today by signing a letter to the Governor's office and your state legislators.

We can't afford to allow our region's transit system to fall further behind.
