Did You Know?

Roughly every three days, one person biking or walking is killed by someone driving a car in the Chicago region.

Escape the cold — explore the pedway!

On Thursday, January 29, the Active Transportation Alliance is joining up with Moxie, Chicago’s LGBTQA social group for urban planning and policy professionals, to co-host a tour of Chicago’s beloved pedway system. 

This event will benefit Streetsblog Chicago’s Resurrection Fund, which is needed after its recent forced hibernation. The tour will be led by John Greenfield, editor of Streetsblog Chicago.

The pedway is a vast network of more than 40 city blocks in Chicago’s central business district. A series of tunnels and walkways connect CTA stations, retail areas, skyscrapers and hotels, while providing a nice shelter from the elements and traffic.

The pedway is used by tens of thousands of people every day, yet remains a mystery to many. 

The cost for this event is $10 (please bring cash) and all proceeds will benefit Streetsblog Chicago’s fundraising efforts. 

Meet at Infields (111 N. State) in the basement of Macy’s department store for a drink before departing at 6pm.  The tour will end at Houlihan’s (111 E. Wacker, also in the pedway!) at 7pm for more drinks, food and good times.
