Share your Illinois transportation woes

Everyone has an opinion about transportation in Illinois.

Now, by sharing those opinions with the Metropolitan Planning Council, you can help advocate for better transportation in the state.

MPC, which works on planning and development issues in the region, is asking people to share their experiences biking, walking, driving and using transit in Illinois. 

Your feedback on the state's roads and highway systems, train and bus lines, bike routes and sidewalks will all help MPC work for better transportation in the state, and the group will use feedback to inform its advocacy in Springfield in 2015. 

Take the survey here by Friday, Dec. 12 and you'll have a chance to win one of 250 checks for $20. Using the Dscout mobile app, you can answer questions in the survey and even use photos and video to share your biggest transportation frustrations.
