June 16, 2016
CHICAGO – Summer fun is just a short ride away and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) is reminding riders that public transportation offers a fast and convenient way to get around the region. Take a bus or train to avoid sitting in traffic and paying for parking to meet friends and family or just enjoy our region.
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 by using 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.
