Take Action to Support Faster, More Reliable Transit on Ashland Avenue and Across Chicago

/Momentum is building for bringing world-class transit to Ashland Avenue and other parts of Chicago, but your help is needed to keep it going.

You may have heard that CTA recently announced exciting plans to implement Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) on Ashland Avenue between 95th Street and Irving Park Road.

Imagine taking transit on Ashland meant service that’s faster, more reliable and more like taking the train. The first phase of this project will run from 31st Street to Cortland Street. 

The plans for BRT will create a more welcoming environment for people who are walking and prioritize transit on the street by converting the center lanes on Ashland to bus-only lanes and adding full-service transit stations and high-tech traffic signals.

It’s a smarter way to move people and better balance the needs of everyone who uses our streets. BRT will improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods, provide better access to jobs and services, reduce traffic congestion and make our streets safer.

The plan put forward by the city puts us on the right path. Now our city officials need to hear that we support this new vision.
