Committee members are reaching out across Chicago, gathering fresh viewpoints from our city’s rich and diverse communities.Their recommendations will be published in a transition report, which will be made available on this website and distributed to all Chicago public libraries.”

As stated in the Committee’s charge: “Transportation is the great connector of our city. Whether Chicagoans are going to work, going to school, visiting friends, or going to a community center – a high-quality, reliable, accessible, safe system is critical to social mobility and economic vitality. Chicago is a hub for moving people and goods, driving business development and job creation. Its location and infrastructure link Chicago to the rest of the nation and the globe.”
