    Any idea how many will be attending, and what the transportation situation will be?

    • SUSTatRU says:

      Not sure, Linda, but with a decent weather forecast for tomorrow, it’s likely to be a good turnout. Climate strikers plan to march from the south end of Grant Park (Columbus/Roosevelt, which is near the CTA Roosevelt Rd L station) north and then west to Federal Plaza. We recommend taking public transit to the event if at all possible. See the CTA Trip Planner for info.

    Having been to many rallies in downtown Chicago and coming from Hyde Park I plan to take the Metra, but I am wondering whether the city can plan extra transportation when the event does not have a clear idea of how many will be there. I have been to rallies with 350,000 and they are saying 1000. Given all of the groups that I have heard are coming I feel that it is likely there will be many more than that, and I would like to have a better sense of the numbers. Who will be keeping tally. The CTA, and the Metra do not have any information on their websites about this rally like they did about the Women’s March where they told us they would have extra buses and trains.
