Discussing Transit on WGN Radio
July 16, 2019
Last weekend I joined Rick Pearson on WGN Radio to discuss Rebuild Illinois and how the new capital program will improve mass transit in our region. While the total number from the bill falls short of the region’s $30 billion in transit capital needs over the next decade, make no mistake: It is a significant step forward. We also discuss the benefits of mass transit and how investments in our public transportation system can benefit communities across our entire region.
