CTA Hosts Three Public Open House Meetings

June 12, 2012
Introducing Bus Rapid Transit to the Western & Ashland Corridors
 
CTA today will host the first of three open house meetings about Bus Rapid Transit service under consideration for Western and Ashland Avenues.
 
The Chicago Transit Authority, in partnership with the Chicago Department of Transportation is working on bringing BRT to Chicago.
 
Bus Rapid Transit service offers faster, more efficient and more reliable travel than traditional bus service. Designed for busy streets with high vehicle traffic, BRT systems can offer a number of features including, traffic signal prioritization, dedicated bus lanes and other customer amenities.
 
CTA and CDOT are currently studying Western & Ashland Avenues. At the Open House meetings, the public will be introduced to the project and the Alternative Analysis process which is a study of the potential impacts of the various project options.
 
CTA staff members will be on hand to explain the various options and listen to feedback.
