Save The Route 11 Lincoln Bus
The route to fostering community and growth is through Route 11
The Sun Times is reporting that five of 7 CTA Board members "would be willing to convene a special board meeting to reconsider the planned Sunday shutdown of nearly half of the No. 11 Lincoln Avenue bus route."
Keep up the pressure!

The CTA's Plan
On August 22nd, the CTA announced a plan that proposes to discontinue service for the Route 11 Lincoln Bus between Western and Fullerton.
Why It Matters
The Route 11 Lincoln Bus is used by 5,800 people every weekday. The Route 11 Lincoln Bus serves every member of our community, including but not limited to: senior citizens, low income and disabled individuals, families and DePaul students. Our community uses Route 11 to get to work, school, medical centers, and local businesses.
Route 11 bolsters the continued growth of small businesses in our community, transforming a previously undeveloped stretch into a bustling commercial artery between Lincoln Park and Lincoln Square. Businesses that are accessible by public transportation flourish and create jobs, those that are not, fail.
If the CTA's plan is approved, our community will be faced with fewer transportation options, and the threat of stunted economic growth. Take action today and make sure the Route 11 Lincoln Bus keeps running, so our community can keep growing.
