CCGT Presents Seminar on the Benefits of Public Transit Tomorrow at 6pm

Tomorrow at 6pm, the Chicago Center for Green Technology (445 N. Sacramento) presents Jacky Grimshaw of the Center for Neighborhood Technology discussing “A Transit-Oriented Future: Benefits of Public Transit.”

This seminar aims to inform people of the economic benefits of taking public transit. Building on CNT’s Housing + Transportation Index, class attendees will be more informed of the true economic, social and environmental costs of a sprawling, automobile-dependent transportation system. With new administrations in the City of Chicago and Cook County, the Chicago Region is at a critical point of opportunity and challenge in moving towards a more sustainable future. This seminar will equip people to advocate and mobilize for a transit-oriented future both in their day-to-day lives and through political advocacy.

For more information, contact the Chicago Center for Green Technology at greentech@cityofchicago.org or (312)746-9642.
