Attention Commuters

Make sure you have a plan for traveling between school/work and home in case of an emergency.

Before an emergency happens, list your normal and some alternative routes you can use to get to your destinations. For example, if you normally take CTA, are there possible Metra lines you can take? If you normally take the train, what bus routes could be an option?
