By on July 12, 2009

ELBURN—The Village of Elburn, in cooperation with the League of Illinois Bicyclists, recently released its Bike to Metra Guide. The guide contains a map with preferred bicycle routes around the Metra Station, as well as bicycle and railroad safety tips.

“This is another way that the village can encourage alternative transportation use,” said Erin Willrett, Elburn Village Administrator. “By providing a guide with a map and safety tips, we are giving the residents the tools they need to achieve a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.”

The guide was funded completely by the Public Education and Enforcement Research Study grant from the Illinois Commerce Commission.
