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, 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 Your Community >>.

Thank you for your consideration of this matter.

<< Insert Your Name >>
