Emanuel often takes the train to work, chatting with constituents. Devin Leonard goes along for the ride and talks with the mayor about his planned upgrade of the city’s infrastructure.

How often do you take the train ?
I probably do it twice a week. That’s the average, but there are weeks like this week, because of my schedule, it was once. It would have been on Monday, but Amy and the kids were leaving, so I wanted to stay and see them off.
