The Chicagoland transit network, once the envy of other cities and metropolitan areas, is sorely outdated and inefficient.  We need more investment in public transportation and high-speed rail and less reliance on automobiles that pollute our environment.  We must not only improve public transit, but we must also have more transparency and community engagement in shaping routes and other essential aspects of transit between citizens, townships, and transportation agencies. Jonathan Jackson will work to bring about better cooperation between the local and regional transportation agencies and more community engagement.
