If you walk, bike, drive or take public transit in the Chicago area, point your browsers toward Grid Chicago. The sustainable transportation blog has rounded up a network of sites covering local transportation.
It’s a handy collection of posts from dozens of blogs covering bike lanes, the CTA and some general climate / environmental policy issues.
According to 5-year estimates made by the Census Bureau, more than half of working Chicagoans over 16 years old drive to work alone. In a February analysis by U.S. News, safety concerns knocked Chicago off the list of 10 best U.S. cities for public transportation.
So while you’re waiting for the ‘El’ to suddenly run express and blow past your station, take a look at Grid Chicago’s network.
