Please Make A Call


Dear Representative Acevedo, My name is _________.

I am a resident of Bridgeport, and a member of Bridgeport Alliance. I am calling to thank you for your support in our efforts to get a 31st Street Bus on the east end of the route. I am also looking forward to our meeting with you, Senator Munoz, Alderman Balcer, and the CTA.

As this bus is very important to our community and our people, it would be quite a gift to have this meeting before Christmas, this year.

As you know, we need a bus! Let's get this done together!
