Dear << Insert Local Elected Official Name >>,
A high-quality public transportation system is important to me.
I am interested in seeing more transportation opportunities developed
in the suburbs as a way to combat increased traffic congestion.
It is my understanding that Pace, the suburban bus division of the Regional
Transportation Authority (RTA) has developed a plan called VISION 2020.
This plan coordinates the efforts and interests of community groups and
units of local governments to address the transportation needs of all residents
of northeastern Illinois.
If you are unfamiliar with the project, visit Pace's website, www.pacebus.com/sub/Vision2020/
to learn more about it.
Please know that I support this effort to improve public transportation.
I encourage my community leaders to become involved with Pace's Vision 2020
plan by participating in discussions with the agency and contributing information
about our area.
I hope, on behalf of your constituents, you will take an active role
in partnering with Pace to make our community a better place to live and
work by improving the transit system available to us here in << Insert
