While the Chicago region’s population grew by 18 percent since 1980, the traffic increased by 66 percent in the same period.

Take action to restore Chicago transit and Divvy service

As Chicago grapples with social unrest and an unprecedented global pandemic, we need reliable transportation options more than ever.

But CTA service is suspended again Monday evening. And Metra and Divvy remain out of service.

Sign a letter to Mayor Lightfoot and your alderman urging them to restore transit service.

We appreciate the unprecedented position Chicago’s leaders are in at this moment. Balancing the need to maintain public safety while protecting the rights of residents is a complex task under normal circumstances, let alone during a global pandemic.

However, we urge the City of Chicago and transit agencies work to fully restore transit and Divvy service immediately. In the event services need temporary rerouting or temporary suspensions due to safety, reliable alternatives must be in place to support people who need to get home, to work, or to meet a critical need. Shutting down the entire system, or access to large parts of the city, is destabilizing.

More than one in four households in Chicago lacks access to a car. A crisis like the one we are facing now is when we need reliable transportation options the most.

Chicago residents: Sign a letter to Mayor Lightfoot and your alderman urging them to work with transit agencies to immediately restore transit and Divvy service.
