Long live Logan Square!

From The Dirt, we learn that “Living Near Public Transporation May Lengthen Your Life.”  At The Dirt, they write about a recent study done for The American Public Transportation Association that explains the positive effects of living near public transit, the obvious ones you might expect and often hear touted:  that people drive less and walk more, and the less obvious ones you might overlook and that tend not be used in advocating for public transit and transportation oriented development (TOD):  that there are fewer traffic fatalities per capita than places without public transit.

Logan Square residents are well situated to “live long and prosper.”
