DOWNTOWN — Pregnant people can get free “baby on board” buttons next week to help them get seats while commuting.
The Mom Project, which helps professional women connect with companies, is giving away the buttons in hopes they’ll spur other commuters to give up seats on the train or bus to pregnant people, according to a news release.
The CTA is planning a similar initiative: It’ll give wearable buttons to pregnant people to signal to other riders that they’d like a seat, if possible. But the agency doesn’t yet know when it’ll make those buttons available.
The Mom Project’s buttons will be handed out 7:30-9:30 a.m. Sept. 10 at Goddess and the Baker, 225 N. LaSalle St. Those who wish to participate can also request a button by sending the Mom Project a message through Instagram.
