Bus riders account for more than 20 percent of people using Lake Shore Drive every day while taking up a fraction of the space that cars do.

This weekend: Blue Island Non-Motorized Plan workshop and more

 First, let's take stock of what's going on with Blue Island:

Now, let's look what's going to happen this Saturday:

Blue Island Non-Motorized Plan Public Workshop
August 27, 10:30 a.m. to noon
Blue Island Public Library, 2433 York S.
FREE and OPEN TO ALL (Got kids? See the bike rodeo below!)
Bring your everyday experience of biking, walking, driving and transit in Blue Island to our workshop and share it with us. Help us find solutions that will connect the city to the future Cal-Sag Trail, and improve the safety, convenience, and popularity of healthy, active, and sustainable transportation.

Kids Bike Rodeo—FREE!
August 27, 10:30 a.m. to noon
Parking lot across the street from the library
Bring your kids and we'll tune up their biking skills! A skilled Active Trans youth bike instructor will teach your kids safe cycling skills and tips while you're inside sharing your Blue Island biking, walking and transit experience.

Cal-Sag Cycles Bike Fix Up 
10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Parking lot across the street from the library
JamiFlat tires and squeeling brakes shouldn't stop you from beautiful Blue Island-in-the-fall cruising. The famed Cal-Sag Cycles youth can get your ride rolling in time for fall cruising. They'll be doing some basic wrenching—bolt tightening, seat raising, flat fixing, brake adjusting—for a donation that supports the Cal-Sag Cycles program. 

What's going on in Blue Island…is that Blue Island has it going on!

See you on Saturday!
