#BustedCommute Photo Album (2018)

Download publication (27 MB)

In early 2018, the Metropolitan Planning Council launched #BustedCommute, a social media campaign inviting people to document their first-hand encounters with Illinois’ crumbling transportation infrastructure. From highways, buses, trains and sidewalks, from underneath bridges and flooded El stations, images started rolling in.

The #BustedCommute campaign was featured on WGN-TV with Amy Rutledge, WBEZ’s “The Morning Shift” with Tony Sarabia, Univision with Natalie Pérez, John Greenfield’s Streetsblog and elsewhere.

Documenting the problem in images and video empowers us to advocate for sustainable revenue for our state's transportation network. Here is a collection of Tweets, emails and pictures from people across Illinois that illustrates the urgent need for sustainable transportation investments. From epic potholes to decrepit bridges, this album captures our favorite #BustedCommute media.
