New CDOT commissioner Rebekah Scheinfeld open to hearing Ashland bus lane concerns, report says

The CTA says Ashland is in need of a makeover because one in four households along the route don't own a car. But some who live and work say the plan will kill business.

Chicago's newly confirmed transportation commissioner says she will listen to concerns about installing bus rapid transit lanes on Ashland Avenue.

Rebekah Scheinfeld tells The Chicago Sun-Times she knows plenty about the opposition to the Chicago Transit Authority's plan for a 16-mile stretch of Ashland.

One option could be to add more left-turns back into the concept design.

Scheinfeld comes to the Chicago Department of Transportation from the CTA where she was a strategic planner.
