The nonprofit advocacy group works to improve walking, biking and public transit conditions in the Chicago area. Last year, the organization released letter grades for bus services in all of the city's 50 wards.Fair Fares Chicagoland recommends creating a 50% reduced transit fare program for residents in Cook, Lake, McHenry, DuPage, Will and Kane counties. The program would benefit those living at or below 200% of the federal poverty line.The report estimates the program would cost the CTA, Pace and Metra a combined $175 million annually. Meanwhile, the annual savings could add up to $630 for low-income CTA riders; as much as $840 for low-income Pace riders; and $1,650 for low-income Metra riders."This report has some good ideas, but the challenge as always is finding a way to pay for them," Metra spokeswoman Meg Thomas-Reile said in a statement.Thomas-Reile said Metra is working on a pilot program that provides lower fares and transfers for riders on the Metra Electric and Rock Island lines with financial support from Cook County.For the full story, click here. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Chicago-area college student arrested for guns in SUV http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191118/news/311189951/ http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191118/news/311189951/ Mon, 18 Nov 2019 13:36:00 UTC DailyHerald.com > Chicago News A judge has denied bond to a Chicago-area college student who was charged after police found more than six guns in his SUV in a campus parking lot http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ 100 guns turned in at St. Sabina buyback program in Chicago http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191118/news/311189956/ http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191118/news/311189956/ Mon, 18 Nov 2019 12:46:00 UTC DailyHerald.com > Chicago News A gun buyback program at St. Sabina Church in Chicago collected at least 100 firearms http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Chicago police miss deadlines, but make progress on reforms http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191117/news/311179936/ http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191117/news/311179936/ Sun, 17 Nov 2019 16:55:00 UTC DailyHerald.com > Chicago News A report says the Chicago Police Department failed to meet most of its deadlines in a far-reaching court-supervised reform plan, but has made progress http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Gunman still at large after killing outside Chicago school http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191117/news/311179940/ http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191117/news/311179940/ Sun, 17 Nov 2019 15:46:00 UTC DailyHerald.com > Chicago News Authorities are still searching for a man who allegedly shot and killed his daughter's mother's new boyfriend of outside of a Chicago elementary school http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Rolling Meadows bank robbery suspect tosses cash from car window http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191116/rolling-meadows-bank-robbery-suspect-tosses-cash-from-car-window http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191116/rolling-meadows-bank-robbery-suspect-tosses-cash-from-car-window Sat, 16 Nov 2019 21:46:19 UTC DailyHerald.com > Chicago News A suspect in a Rolling Meadows bank robbery tossed cash out of a car window during a high-speed chase Saturday morning that ended with the man's arrest in Chicago, authorities said. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Chicago Bar Association offers free legal advice Saturday http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191116/news/311169943/ http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191116/news/311169943/ Sat, 16 Nov 2019 18:15:00 UTC DailyHerald.com > Chicago News The Chicago Bar Association is offering brief legal advice for free by phone Saturday http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Chicago teachers approve contract deal that ended strike http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191116/news/311169955/ http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20191116/news/311169955/ Sat, 16 Nov 2019 13:47:00 UTC DailyHerald.com > Chicago News Chicago teachers have voted in favor of the contract deal that ended an 11-day strike http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Chicago man killed in crash on Route 53 near Palatine http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191115/chicago-man-killed-in-crash-on-route-53-near-palatine http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191115/chicago-man-killed-in-crash-on-route-53-near-palatine Fri, 15 Nov 2019 23:46:10 UTC DailyHerald.com > Chicago News A Chicago man died late Thursday after his vehicle struck a pole on southbound Route 53 near Palatine, Illinois State Police reported in a news release Friday. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/
