RTA Board Reviews 2014 Regional Public Transportation Performance Measures
October 15, 2015
CHICAGO – The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) today released its 2014 annual reports on the region’s public transportation system’s performance in a presentation to its Board of Directors. The RTA is the only unit of local government charged with regional financial oversight, funding, and transit planning for the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), Metra, and Pace Suburban Bus and ADA Paratransit. The reports are developed collaboratively with the CTA, Metra, and Pace through a performance measurement task force.
“We take seriously our responsibility to monitor and share the performance measure results of the region’s public transportation system,” says Leanne Redden, RTA Executive Director. “We think it is important to look at performance on an annual and five-year trend basis, identify trends and their causes, and then share this information with the public.”
Highlights of the reports, which evaluated the performance of our region’s transit system for 2014 and for the 2010 - 2014 time period, include:
