To adapt to riders' changing needs, the RTA is adding a parking option to its Transit Benefit Fare Program, allowing riders to set aside pre-tax money from their paychecks to be used for parking, as well as transit in the Chicago region.
The RTA Board of Directors kicked off a 15-month process to develop the next regional transit strategic plan with a workshop to discuss opportunities and challenges in five broad areas: Opportunities for Impact, Transit System Adaptation, Funding Sustainability, Equity, and Engagement.
Created by the State of Illinois, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) coordinates the Chicago region’s transit system, oversees its financing with transparency and accountability, and plans for a future with adequate, accessible, and equitable public transportation for the six counties of Northeastern Illinois.
The RTA Board adopted the Invest in Transit plan in 2018 to set a bold vision and goals for our regional transit system over the next five years.
The RTA sends a twice-monthly e-newsletter with important information about the transit system, including the regional response to COVID-19. Click the button below to subscribe.
