How does one go about getting a new CTA bus stop and shelter?
Well, you could ask the CTA.
Or you could ask and then really dramatize the need for it with a 300-person march and press conference.
That’s what faith leaders from the Gamaliel Foundation are planning for this Friday morning to emphasize the need for the #21 bus to stop at Morgan Street and Cermak in front of Casa Maravilla Senior Housing complex, across from the Alivio Medical Center.
march will dramatize the challenging walk that the transit-dependent senior and
patients at the medical center are forced to make due to the lack of a bus stop
there,” said the Gamaliel Foundation in a press release.
The march will step off from the bus stop at Morgan St. and Cermak Rd. to Casa Maravilla Senior Building at 2021 S. Morgan St. at 10:20 am Friday.
Good luck getting the bus stop!
