The Chicago region’s current hub-and-spoke transit system leaves nearly half a million Cook County residents stranded in transit deserts.

Riders for Better Transit launches infographic touting Bus Rapid Transit benefits

As we push for better transit funding, we're excited about Chicago's plans for Bus Rapid Transit. Active Trans analyzed some of the benefits and put together a nifty infographic that shows what a big a difference BRT can make. We sent out a news release touting this infographic today, and you can check out the graphic below.

To mobilize transit riders, we are urging people to sign our BRT petition and attend public meetings next TuesdayWednesday, and Thursday (Oct. 16-18) to support BRT. We encourage you to attend and let the CTA know you support bus-only lanes in the center of the street and maintaining wide sidewalks and on-street parking. We believe this will provide the best options for Chicago's BRT.
