Emanuel's Transition Report: More Bikes, BRT, Transit, Safety
Tuesday, May 10, 2011 - 01:43 PM
(Andrea Bernstein, Transportation Nation) Mayor-Elect Rahm Emanuel is out with his transition report, and it's got lots to dig into for transpo addicts: proposals for more street safety (p 29), where pedestrian safety actually comes before street patrols (p 30), for a "world-class" bike network (p 37), more high quality public space (p 40), and, under a section called "OUR GROWTH," calls to "improve and expand Chicago's transit system...develop bus rapid transit, support transit-oriented development" and " accelerate infrastructure projects that are critical to regional growth."
