Opening Thursday, December 20th, from 6PM - 8PM
Does your daily commute look the way you want it to? Do you take CTA, Pace, Metra, or some combination of the three? Come and discuss the outlook of public transportation in the Chicagoland area with other commuters and City Bureau.
City Bureau reporters will share their findings that they have been researching for the past two months and are here to listen to your stories about your commutes— what’s working, where are areas for improvement, and what you want transportation officials to know about your experiences.
Please note, this event will NOT take place at Build Coffee. Instead this week’s Public Newsroom will be held at the Metropolitan Planning Council (140 S. Dearborn St.). MPC is an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that serves communities and residents by developing, promoting and implementing solutions for sound regional growth. For more information about MPC’s recent transportation initiatives, check out Transit Means Business (tinyurl.com/transit-mb) and #BustedCommute (tinyurl.com/bust3dcommute).
This event is part of City Bureau’s #PublicNewsroom programming, a series of free, weekly workshops and discussions aimed at building trust between journalists and the communities they serve while shaping a more inclusive newsroom.
