TAKE ACTION: Tell your alderman to prioritize transit with bus-only lanes!

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a new mode of public transit that reinvents the bus. It offers a faster transit option that runs on existing streets, but with the convenience and reliability of a train. 

Cities around the world are using bus-only lanes, full-service transit stations and high-tech traffic signals to create high-quality BRT systems. BRT can improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods, from providing better access to jobs and services, to reducing traffic congestion and making our streets safer.

Chicago is considering BRT projects for the Western/Ashland corridor, but these transit improvements may be threatened by streets that prioritize car drivers over all other road users. Help send the message that Chicago aldermen should make transit a priority with these new BRT projects.
