Save Chicagoland transit! sign now

Save Chicago mass transit. The Illinois legislature needs to know this issue is important. On September 1st, Pace will increase fares and cut service to some areas if more funding is not approved. CTA will increase fares also. Metra will do the same by the beginning of 2008. There is a bill in the legislature designed to help with this crisis.







The legislation, Senate Bill 572, calls for a quarter-percent increase in the regional sales tax for the Regional Transportation Authority's (RTA) six-county area, which would generate an estimated $280 annually to fund CTA, Metra and Pace, and an increase in the real estate transfer tax only in Chicago to support the CTA's employee pension system.







This bill is critically important to the millions of people that rely on Pace, Metra and CTA daily. Without mass transit, those people would not be able to get to work. Worse yet, a big percentage of them would drive, causing more congestion on Illinois all ready crowded highways.







Support mass transit now!!!
