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

One of those meetings is located in Englewood at the 7th District Police Station located at 438 W. 63rd Street on June 12th from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. It is the first of three meetings scheduled by the CTA on bus rapid transit (BRT). Here's more from CTA Tattler:
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.
Here's a link for more information on the proposed BRT and on these public meetings!
