Repost: CTA schedules open houses on Western, Ashland corridors BRT project

(Following is a repost from May 22.)

CTA riders can explore various options for bus rapid transit (BRT) projects on the 21-mile stretches of both Ashland and Western avenues during three open house meetings June 12-14.

According to an email from the CTA, the purpose of the meetings is to:

  • Introduce the project and the Alternatives Analysis (AA) process. The AA is a study of the potential impacts of the various project options. Each option or “alternative” includes different features and service plans.
  • Provide additional information to the public about the project.
  • Solicit feedback from the community on the project.

During the AA process, the CTA, in partnership with the Chicago Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Administration, offer various BRT options for the community to weigh in on. They will explain the positive and negative impacts of a variety of Bus Rapid Transit features and service on both Western and Ashland Avenues.

Meeting dates, locations:

  • Tuesday, June 12, at the  7the District Police Station, 1438 W. 63rd Street.
  • Wednesday, June 13, at Lane Tech High School, 2501 W. Addison.
  • Thursday, June 14, at Wells High School, 936 N. Ashland.

All meetings run from 5:30 to 7:30 pm; all facilities are accessible to people with disabilities.

  • Just bring back the X9 & X49!
    Simpler & cheaper.
    Maybe they even stored the old bus stop signs in a warehouse.

  • In reply to ScooterLibbby:

    You can guess what I will say next.

    The grant has nothing to do with bringing back the X9 and X49, but keeping a consultant off the soup line.

    It isn't worth my going, but probably they started off discounting maglev and LRV.
