run the #50 damen bus later and more frequently

    1. Petition by

this bus runs through several bar/restaurant neighborhoods (pilsen, west loop, ukranian village, wicker park, bucktown, roscoe village, north center, andersonville, and edgewater to name a few) and spans the city of chicago from 3500 south to 5700 north. many of these neighborhoods are inhabited by people who work in those bars and restaurants and do not have cars. the last damen bus heads south at 9:20 pm that is ridiculous! one of the next closest buses (ashland) doesn't even go further north than irving park (4000 north). i have also found that during busy times of the day, there is still up to 30 minutes between buses. i feel as though there is a big enough need to cover the cost of this bus running later. even if less frequent at night.

      The connections to the Pink, Brown, and Blue lines as well as the diversity of the typical small and other businesses along the Damen avenue route would be better served by providing a way to customers of the CTA to travel more frequently using this route and allows the people of Chicago and the CTA to benefit from the increased commerce and access to services.

      Having the Damen bus run later would make it much easier to get back and forth at night.

      The Damen bus is my primary route to work. I work at a bar with late hours. Having the option of the Damen bus later would be a great boon.

      Because I ride it every day and stand in the cold and wet for FOREVER waiting for a single bus. God forbid the driver have a bus that's "Not in Service" (Happens a lot) or even worse, that time the driver just didn't stop....so I stood in 10 degree weather for another 20 minutes. Awful.
