Did You Know?

People walking are five times as likely to be killed by a driver traveling 30 mph as one going 20 mph.

“Hey Chicago, what would encourage you to walk, bike or take CTA more often?”

That’s what the Give a Minute campaign is asking Chicagoans. Citizens are encouraged to participate by texting their ideas to 312.380.0436 or posting them on the website

Active Trans is honored that our leader, Ron Burke, is featured in the campaign along with CTA Chairman Terry Peterson and SRAM President and CEO, Stan Day.

Look for the ads on CTA buses and trains and send in your ideas and thoughts about what would get you to walk, bike or jump on the CTA.

Here's a great video about the campaign:

I snapped a cell phone photo of one of the ads on the 49 B Western Bus…hope you get to see them in-person, it’s an excellent campaign by our friends at CEOs for Cities.
