The Self-Help Solution

The City of Chicago has cut bus service throughout the city, leaving many neighborhoods without accessible transit to other parts of the city. More than nine express routes and over 1,000 transit jobs have been slashed. So what do to about it? A resourceful group of Chicagoans is exploring the creation of a worker self-managed, community-controlled transit cooperative to provide bus service along the 31st Street corridor, one of the areas affected by city cutbacks.
