RTA Trip Planner offers easy way to plan routes to Cubs games

CHICAGO – With the Chicago Cubs facing off against the St. Louis Cardinals in the playoffs tonight, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) is reminding riders that they can beat the traffic by taking the fastest and most convenient way to get to Wrigleyville and all of the Cubs festivities: public transportation.

Riders can use the RTA’s Trip Planner to plan travel and select routes with ADA accessible services when necessary.  It is the only website in the region that provides a variety of options for getting around by using transit, walking, bicycling and driving.
