Call CTA President Forrest Claypool and Demand a 31st St. Bus!

Call Forrest Claypool for a 31st St. Bus!
Call 312-681-5001
After fifteen years without service, transit dependent riders in Bridgeport, McKinley Park, Little Village, Chinatown, Bronzeville and Armour Park remain without an East-West bus route along 31st St. Bringing back the 31st St. bus would help students safely reach schools, open up countless new job opportunities and offer a much needed economic boost for businesses along the route.
The federal government has offered half the funds necessary to bring the route back, and now we need to tell the CTA President Forrest Claypool that the community needs this bus route!
Here is a sample script to help you plan your phone call:


Hello,
My name is ___________, and I would like to ask Forrest Claypool to fully fund the 31st St. Bus from Cicero to the Lakefront. As a resident of _________________ (neighborhood), I will be able to use the bus to
(Choose one)
□ take the bus to Mercy Hospital
□ take the bus to school
□ take the bus to work
□ take the bus to shop
□ take the bus to the new 31 St. beach
Our community needs this bus! Thank you.
