We are a movement of frustrated Chicago commuters. Throughout the pandemic, the Chicago Transit Authority's (CTA's) service has worsened significantly. The agency has failed to inform riders about the decreased frequency of buses and trains, while bus and rail operator work conditions have gotten worse. CTA's leadership, headed by president Dorval Carter, keeps a dishonest and misleading tone about what's happening at the agency. Commuters Take Action's goal is to keep putting pressure on the CTA and city officials to start caring about one of our city's greatest assets - its transit system!
