Did You Know?

While the Chicago region’s population grew by 18 percent since 1980, the traffic increased by 66 percent in the same period.

Won't you be our green neighbor?

ShoreBank will present Active Trans with its Green Neighbor award tonight.

A century ago Daniel Burnham’s “big plans” brought beauty and order to Chicago. Today, a local nonprofit’s commitment to encouraging a multitude of eco-friendly transportation options is enabling more people to experience the city’s notable architecture and cultural diversity while making it a better place to work, live and play, ShoreBank said in a news release. In recognition of their leadership demonstrating how environmentally clean and physically active transportation—walking, bicycling, public transit—and economic development can be achieved together, ShoreBank presented the 2009 Green Neighbor Award to the Active Transportation Alliance and its executive director, Rob Sadowsky.

We are honored and proud of the recognition. Thank you to ShoreBank!
