Chicago RTA presents projects list

Chicago’s Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) has presented a list of 13 planning, operating and capital projects through its funding program, proposing to allocate nearly $14 million in funds to support projects that will plan for and increase transit usage. The new projects are expected to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the RTA and help increase mobility for the area’s seniors and people with disabilities.

“The projects supported by the funding programs allow communities and transportation providers to work together to implement projects that will improve mobility and access,” stated Joe Costello, RTA’s executive director. “Additionally, the comment period provides the public an opportunity to voice their opinions regarding the projects the RTA is recommending.”
