@chicagotribune @marywizchicago Kudos to the Tribune's Mary Wisniewski for her article today about traffic congestion in our region and we'd like to welcome her back to the transit beat! If you haven't read her story yet, please do. But, not if you're sitting in traffic!!
Read About How Lucky We Are to Have A Transit System
It’s astounding to think that the average Chicago area motorist wasted about 114 hours sitting in traffic jams last year—that’s almost a full work week! This should make us grateful for our public transportation system and wonder aloud what our traffic would be like without it. Let’s get at least that 5% of driving commuters off the road and onto buses and trains as the expert in this story recommends--so we can spend that week on the beach instead of on the road.
