Did You Know?

Only 24 percent of jobs in the region are accessible by transit in 90 minutes or less by a typical resident — and that number drops to 12 percent in the suburbs.

Tell us what you think about e-scooters

As a full-fledged e-scooter sharing program in Chicago starts to take shape, we want to hear from you about what the future of scooters in Chicagoland should look like.

Chicago’s e-scooter pilot ends October 15. In coming weeks, Active Trans is collecting feedback on the Chicago pilot from residents, community-based organizations, and elected officials as we determine how to advocate around e-scooter policy. We plan to release a policy report in mid-October.

Chicago officials say no decisions have been made about a long-term e-scooter program, and some suburbs are considering e-scooter policy questions.

You can help by joining Active Trans and our community partners in any of the following activities.

POLICY SURVEY

Share your views about e-scooter policy in a 10-question survey. Everyone who completes the survey is eligible to win a $100 Visa gift card. (Here’s a Spanish language version of the survey.) 

FEEDBACK NIGHT

Join Streetsblog Chicago and Active Trans for a discussion at Revolution Brewing Taproom (3340 N. Kedzie) on Wednesday Sept 25, from 5:30pm to 8pm. What worked? What didn’t? What questions do we still have? Two free beverages and food will be provided. RSVP to this free event today.

COMMUNITY ROUNDTABLE

Active Trans is partnering with Northwest Side Housing Center for a roundtable discussion on Friday, September 13. Grassroots leaders and community-based organizations from inside and outside the pilot area are welcome. Email julia@activetrans.org if you or someone you know is interested in joining.
