can you imagine if we took the money proposed for this nonsense and did actual sensible transit upgrades, especially in areas that are low accessibility currently?

this is just rahm's shameless ploy to get the people that fly in for business and stay around the airport into the downtown areas

I saw some other tweets saying that this isn't actually true and its people hyping stuff up into urban legends, which is why there hasn't been any media attention about it. Of course it's exactly the type of thing the city wouldn't want made public so it could be a cover up too.

i wondered about that aspect, searching around on twitter through hashtags and stuff, seemed like a toss up between genuine concern and the potential of a proliferating urban legend. hard to say. i hope it doesn't continue.

in terms of transit priorities it would be nice but i wouldnt say its hugely critical since the area is already well served by the Red Line. and there are express buses (147) which are pretty sick assuming theres not a traffic jam..can get form like Bryn Mawr to the loop in like 20 mins.

im more interested in some decent way to connect the North to the W/NW side (try getting from the lakeshore to O'Hare..i dont know why every airport service has to serve the same Kennedy/Milwaukee corridor. yea theres buses but if youve ever sat on the Lawrence westbound trying to get to the Kennedy just to connect to the Blue Line...better allow like 2 hours in travel time

Any of you native Chicagoans remember the homie the clown thing back in the early 90's?

I'm not sure if this was a chicago thing, or nationwide.

My school actually made parents pick us up a couple days after reported "sightings"

i can't stop laughing everytime i see the words THE BORING COMPANY. But also that promo video says LAX??? lol could chicago be more of a chump city rn.

joe wrote:love to inconveniently save like 20 minutes


this is mostly my reaction to this. like the actual problem with getting to o'Hare has NOTHING to do with how long it takes to commute to the loop.

i'm also just amused by the level of Stupid in this animated projection of how it will work/look. They clearly spend so much more time thinking about 'oh cool' features. Making people line up in groups of 60 to catch one care at a time-- not to mention with giant bags, oof.

yeah the triangulation is bad. even when you're centrally located, it's obvious that there's really poor circulation between. i'm conflicted about that tho, i think sometimes these things are what help certain areas retain some of the identity that they do. I'm still pro better circulation, but I'm wary of the usual ham-fisted way it's likely to be implemented.

this is insane. i wonder in what circles this news is actually circulating tho, because I have a lot of friends that do work specifically in the southside and haven't heard much from them about it either ://

I just talked with a co-worker who does advocacy work in the south and west side and said the young girls and women she knows are really freaking out about this and are terrified of being abducted and won't walk to school now because of this. It's really bad and police aren't doing anything.
