Catch the traveling Bus Rapid Transit exhibit at six CTA bus and train stops, Aug. 7-9

Bus Rapid Transit has transformed Cleveland. How can it transform Chicago? Find out at CTA stations near you Aug. 7 to 9.

Have you had a chance to get up to speed yet on the exciting plans for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in the Western/Ashland corridor? If not, don’t miss the traveling BRT exhibit headed to a CTA bus or train stop near you!

BRT is a new mode of public transit that reinvents the bus, offering a better experience with the reliability, efficiency and speed of a train. The CTA, in partnership with the Chicago Dept. of Transportation and Federal Transit Administration, is performing a planning study to explore options for a variety of BRT features and service on both Western and Ashland Avenues.

The Active Transportation Alliance, MPC, and Chicago Architecture Foundation are partnering to bring a mobile BRT exhibit to transit riders. The exhibit is a condensed version of the Bus Rapid Transit: Next Stop Chicago exhibit currently on display at the Chicago Architecture Foundation, 224 S. Michigan Ave., 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. It’s a fun way to learn about Chicago’s plans to improve transit and an opportunity to get involved in support of BRT. The three-day traveling exhibit will end with an evening happy hour exhibit and celebration.

Find information about BRT in Chicago at http://www.brtchicago.com. Transit riders can take action online in support of Bus Rapid Transit here.
