Chicago 2016 Celebration

Chicago 2016

Monday, April 16, 2007
12:00 noon in Daley Plaza
Washington & Clark

Join Mayor Daley and Chicago 2016 Chairman Patrick Ryan for a citywide celebration saluting Chicago’s win of the United States bid in the competition to host the 2016 Olympic Games. There will be music, videos and live athletic exhibitions. Come celebrate with all Chicagoans and hear about the next phase of the City’s campaign to bring the 2016 Olympics to Chicago.

My hope is that we use the push for the games to upgrade our public transportation. Let’s start with express trains from the airports. Then bus lanes on, for example, Lake Shore Drive. And then, rather than the buses going straight up and down our endless gridded streets, find out where people get on the bus and where are their destinations. Then make bus routes that don’t just go up and down the long gridded streets, forcing people to transfer often more than once, but make bus routes that follow the routes that people take.
Here’s to 2016,
