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.

Thanks to those who helped with Riders for Better Transit Day of Action today!

Thank you to all of the supporters who came out to help with the Riders for Better Transit Day of Action today.

src= had nearly 30 volunteers passing out flyers featuring our current action alert, which demands better transit through investment by state government. With their help, we passed out over 6,000 flyers.

This is just the beginning. We have much more to do. These next few weeks are critical for the Transit Fast Forward bill as we build support in the state legislature.

As we continue to reach even more people, we could use your help as a volunteer:

Volunteer for Riders for Better Transit!
Be a Volunteer for a Transit Day of Action. For seven mornings in coming weeks, we'll be canvassing downtown Chicago train stops.

We'll be meeting at the Argo Tea on the corner of Dearborn Street and Madison Street in downtown Chicago, and then spread out to a few downtown train stops to pass out action alert flyers.

Mondays and Wednesdays, starting Wednesday, March 7 and continuing until Wednesday, March 28
7:30 a.m. – 9 a.m.
Argo Tea is at 45 W. Madison Street, at the corner of Dearborn and Madison streets.

If you could lend us a few of your mornings, that would be fantastic. To volunteer, please RSVP to campaign outreach intern Rosette Reynolds,
