Northwest Chicago Activity Group Message Board › Bicycling on the Northwest side

Bicycling on the Northwest side

A former member
Post #: 2
A message from Alice O'Laughlin of the Chicago Cycling Club on behalf of our 45th ward alderman John Arena -

John Arena and I need your help! The city is looking for input on bike share locations and the focus has been on the downtown area. Wouldn't it be great to have a bike share between the Jeff Park terminal and say, Forest Glen? Jeff Park is one of the largest transit hubs in the city and is deserving of a bike share location - let CDOT know!

Here's a blurb from John's email on how you can help:

The City of Chicago is in the process of planning a new bike share program. The program would allow anyone to check out a bike from a location and return the bike to another bike share station. Learn more about bike share here.

I am strongly in favor of the northwest side receiving bike share locations, especially at the Jefferson Park Transit Center. But to make that happen, I need you to add your voice to those calling for a bike share at that location. At the Chicago Department of Transportation Bike Share website, you can suggest locations and add your support to previously suggested spots.

Additionally, there are several upcoming hearings on the bike share plan. On Monday, Oct. 29, bike share hearings will be at The Chicago Architecture Foundation, 224 S. Michigan, from 11:30 am to 1 pm, and againat 6:30 pm to 8 pm. Also on Oct, 29, there will be a bike share hearing Union Station from 3 pm to 5 pm.

If you are busy Oct. 29, you could also attend a hearing Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Lincoln Belmont Public Library, 1659 W. Melrose,from 6:30 pm to 8 pm, or on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at Charles Hayes Center, 4859 S. Wabash,from 6:30 pm to 8 pm.

Please make your voice heard and help bring another transportation alternative to the northwest side.

Thank you for helping your community and for making biking better in Chicago!
