Bus Rapid Transit: Next Stop Chicago

Chicago is preparing to debut a bold plan for giving public transit riders a speedier and smarter way to ride: Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). By combining cutting-edge technology with specially-chosen routes, BRT promises to make Chicago a more connected city. In a region where annual congestion costs over $7 billion in fuel, time, and pollution, investing in rapid and reliable public transit is essential.

This exhibition outlines the features and benefits of BRT while exploring how it is transforming cities around the globe. See how features like dedicated bus lanes and innovative stationdesign are improving bus transportation and people’s lives. Examine one architect’s vision for a BRT station on Daley Plaza. Listen to experts and transit riders alike reflect on how public transportation supports a lively, sustainable, and connected Chicago.
