Pregnant CTA riders can now receive free “Baby on Board!” buttons to wear in transit. The blue buttons read, “Baby on board! Could we please sit down?” This new initiative by the CTA hopes to encourage riders to give up seats for expecting commuters.
“CTA is always seeking out ways to promote a courteous and welcoming environment for all customers,” said CTA President Dorval R. Carter, Jr. in a press release. “These new buttons are the latest effort toward that goal, and we hope they help foster courtesy and consideration among all customers.”
You can get a free CTA Baby on Board button through online ordering or at one of the following locations:
- CTA Headquarters (567 W. Lake St., Chicago)
- Northwestern Medicine Prentice Women’s Hospital (250 E. Superior St., Chicago)
- University of Chicago Medicine (5841 S. Maryland Ave., Chicago)
- Rush University Medical Center (1653 W. Congress Parkway, Chicago)
- St. Anthony Hospital (2875 W. 19th St., Chicago)
- John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County (1969 W. Ogden Ave., Chicago)
Last week, The Mom Project, a Chicago startup, also released its own “Baby on Board” buttons and gave them away to expecting parents in downtown Chicago on Sept. 10. If you missed your chance to grab a button, you can follow them on Instagram and direct message them to receive one.
