    Got 2 items for you. Metra Rock Island has a new schedule effective 1/28/19 to accommodate full implementation of PTC. https://metrarail.com/sites/default/files/assets/metra_rid_pilot_schedule.pdf

    Also, I heard from a CPD officer that there has been a recent ticketing blitz on drivers in the Halsted bike lane between Division and North. If you see officers out there ticketing drivers, say THANK YOU. Let ’em know that you appreciate what they’re doing. If you see an officers in a white shirt out there (supervisor), definitely thank that person. They need to hear it from us.

    They should continue north on Halsted a bit, up to Fullerton. Get a whole bunch of money if they just check out Boka at Willow during evening hours. If all they did was ticket the ride share, taxi, and limos that stand in the bike lane there, they could pay a cop full time.
