The Chicago region’s current hub-and-spoke transit system leaves nearly half a million Cook County residents stranded in transit deserts.
Wednesday, the U.S. Senate approved a one year extension to the surface transportation authorization. They also approved transfers of money to keep the Highway/Transit Fund solvent. The bill will bring at least $1 million in money for Safe Routes to School in Illinois and also allow for a 2010 round of Transportation Enhancements grants. The bill has already been approved by the U.S. House and is expected to be signed by President Barack Obama on Thursday.
