"Seems like they measured incorrectly? Originally, one side was wider than the other. They just recently added a new green strip on the west side of the bike lane to make it the proper width/to even it out. They just added a white stripe on that edge…"

"That's encouraging. There has been occasions when I've seen dangerous driving by a CTA driver and was fortunate enough to spot a supervisor a little further along on the route. I stopped to talk with the supervisor and they did talk to the…"

"Good one. I have had similar experience reporting CTA bus drivers. This is one thing cyclists can do that does make a difference to driver behavior. Also, other drivers will hear about the complaint and understand that cyclists have cell phones and…"

"My experiences in the last two weeks have been poor. USPS truck parked in, pedestrians willy-nilly stepping into the lane without looking, taxis picking up drivers. And I only need it for a few blocks (now that the Canal lane is gone). I think…"

"Yes, I don't think the city or any of the agencies really care about receiving resident input.  If they did, they would be actively seeking it. I have used the CTA's fill-in-the-blank form for complaints and complements.  I fill…"
