4 Chicago-area boards should become one like N.Y., study says

Posted on October 17, 2013

CHICAGO — A consultant Wednesday recommended the Chicago area move to a New York City-like transit structure that would replace the RTA, CTA, Metra and Pace boards with one board driven by a “regional” focus rather than parochial concerns, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The result of the study, was delivered to both the RTA, which commissioned the study in the first place, and a gubernatorial taskforce that released its own initial findings, which included that “the present system was created to represent political and geographic constituencies rather than to provide excellent transit service for the whole region.’’ For the full story, click here.
