Yellow Line Extension

About the Project: Purpose and Need

The purpose of the Yellow Line extension project is to improve transit accessibility and provide mobility options by better utilizing existing transportation infrastructure capacity. The investment also would support the Village of Skokie’s land use plans.

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

  • There is a significant reverse commute to the project area that is not well served by the current Yellow Line terminal location.
  • Travelers on the existing system must make multiple transfers to reach activity and employment centers in the project area.
  • Transit alternatives will allow a portion of project area trips to avoid continued growth in project area arterial street and expressway congestion.
