Orange Line Extension

About the Project: Purpose and Need

The purpose of the Orange Line Extension project is to improve access to the existing Orange Line for southwest side and southwest suburban residents and businesses, support the area’s ongoing economic development efforts, and strengthen the competiveness of transit in the reverse commute market.

The need for the project is based on the following considerations:

  • Access to the Orange Line is currently constrained by limited parking availability;
  • Access to the Orange Line by bus or auto is unreliable due to congestion approaching the existing terminal station; and
  • Few uncongested roadways are available to access the current Orange Line terminal because of wider than usual arterial street spacing, which limits mobility for residents and businesses.
