Public can now opt to listen to board meetings from their computers

CHICAGO – Beginning with its December, 2014 board of directors meeting, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) will launch real-time audio streaming of its board and committee meetings.  The new feature will allow the public to listen to committee and board meetings and view agendas from a smart phone, tablet, and laptop or desktop computer. 

Listeners can visit the RTA’s website at www.RTAChicago.org, click on the button that says, “Listen Live” located on the RTA home page, and automatically be connected to the audio stream.

“This is a great opportunity for the public to hear the business of the RTA board and its committees without having to attend the meetings if they are unable,” said RTA Executive Director Leanne Redden. “This new audio streaming function makes transit information more accessible and increases the RTA’s transparency which is a priority to us.”

The meetings will be streamed live and then posted for later review on the agency’s website.
