Public Transportation Offers Best Travel Option for NFL Draft Festivities
May 1, 2015
CHICAGO – With the NFL Draft in town, the region will be bustling with activities this weekend and drivers will likely experience lots of traffic. The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) is reminding riders that they can beat the traffic by taking the fastest and most convenient mode to get around the region- 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 online site in the region that provides a variety of options for getting around the region, including transit, walking, bicycling and driving. For more information about how the RTA Trip Planner can help you plan your next trip, visit www.RTAchicago.org.
