Chicago Transit stops to feature BRT exhibit

Posted on July 31, 2012

The Active Transportation Alliance, Metropolitan Planning Council and Chicago Architecture Foundation are partnering to bring a traveling exhibit about Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) to six Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus and train stops August 7 to August 9.

Chicago is conducting a BRT planning study for the Western/Ashland corridor, building on existing implementation for BRT routes along Jeffery Ave. on the Southside and in Chicago’s Central Business District.

Transit riders will have the opportunity to learn more about plans to improve transit and get involved in support of BRT. The three-day traveling exhibit will end with an evening happy hour exhibit and celebration. The exhibit is a condensed version of the "Bus Rapid Transit: Next Stop Chicago" exhibit currently on display at the Chicago Architecture Foundation.
