We are Grateful for our Riders!
November 20, 2017
As we all sit down for Thanksgiving this week, it’s tradition that we remind ourselves what we are grateful for. Here at the RTA we are grateful for a world class public transportation system provided by CTA, Metra and Pace.
But more importantly we are grateful for you, the riders, who take more than 2 million rides each work day. And we’re not alone. So I asked a few of my friends to share why they’re thankful for public transit.
Enjoy, and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
And a special thank you to all who participated in our video:
