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.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Today, the Illinois House of Representatives adopted HR 1090 which declares April to be Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

Last year the Illinois General Assembly adopted two bills championed by Active Trans to end distracted driving. As of Jan. 1 2010 it is illegal in Illinois to text message while driving, and illegal to use a hand-held mobile phone in school or highway construction zones.

Thank you Illinois legislators for helping make the roads safer for everyone.
