ACTION ALERT: Support Faster, More Reliable Transit on Ashland Avenue and Across Chicago!

Momentum is building for bringing world-class transit to Ashland Avenue and other parts of Chicago, but your help is needed to keep it going.

You may have heard that CTA recently announced exciting plans to implement Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) on Ashland Ave. between 95th St. and Irving Park Rd. Imagine if taking transit on Ashland meant 21st Century service that’s faster, more reliable, and more like taking the train. The first phase of this project will run from 31st St. to Cortland St.

The plans for BRT will create a more welcoming environment for pedestrians and prioritize transit on the street by converting the center lanes on Ashland Ave. to bus-only lanes and adding full-service transit stations and high-tech traffic signals. It’s a smarter way to move people and better balance the needs of everyone who uses our streets. BRT will improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods, provide better access to jobs and services, reduce traffic congestion and make our streets safer.

The plan put forward by the city puts us on the right path, now our city officials need to hear that we support this new vision.

Please use the form below to send a message to the CTA and your Alderman supporting BRT on Ashland and throughout Chicago!
