Bus Rapid Transit (BRT): CHICAGO'S NEW ROUTE TO OPPORTUNITY

ABOUT THE TALK
 

The money you spend at the gas pump or drop into a bus or train fare box is just a fraction of the $7.3 billion metropolitan Chicago wastes each year due to congestion. To improve transportation options and keep more money in people’s pockets (and the public coffers), cities around the world are implementing Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), a cost-effective way of using existing streets to provide commuters with a fast, affordable and green way to travel. One of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s first-term priorities is to establish a BRT route, and the Chicago Transit Authority and Chicago Dept. of Transportation are exploring its potential along multiple routes. Come learn how BRT’s modern technology, sleek design, and smart implementation may make it Chicago’s best bet yet at beating congestion.


A new exhibition, Bus Rapid Transit: Next Stop, Chicago is now open at the Chicago Architecture Foundation. Admission is Free.
