Support better biking, walking and transit 

DID YOU KNOW?

The Chicago region’s current hub-and-spoke transit system leaves nearly half a million Cook County residents stranded in transit deserts.

  • Plan your route using a bicycle map of your community, if available.
  • Ride on streets with bike lanes and enough room to ride outside of the “door zone” when riding alongside parallel parked cars.
  • Consider riding on residential streets when starting out, even if they take you a bit out of the way.
  • Cross major streets at traffic signals.
