Thanks for a great Transit Day of Action!

On Thursday, April 12, Riders for Better Transit held a second Day of Action to garner support for Transit Fast Forward—state legislation that will provide better funding for public transportation.

The evening started with passing out action alert flyers at Union Station. Then we headed to Boston Blackies restaurant for a few beers to celebrate our hard work!

Thanks to the help of our dedicated volunteers, around 12,000 flyers have been distributed in the past two months! Our goal is to increase the visibility of the bill and tell our elected officials that transit is important and should be well funded so that we can have a faster, more reliable transit system.

And a special thanks to Active Trans board member Steve Schlickman who encouraged his University of Illinois Chicago students to come help us out!
