Summer Events and Festivals Mean Fun in RTA Region
June 13, 2014
Chicago – The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) is reminding riders that the fastest and most convenient way to get around this summer is by taking public transit. The fun is just a short ride away on a bus or train and a great way to avoid the congestion and delays in Chicago’s famous summer or “construction” season as the Kennedy Expressway closures begin. Your choices include:
“Our transit system is the best way to reach your favorite destinations, whether it’s planning a mid-week visit to the museum, enjoying a night out for dinner or participating with hundreds of concert goers at one of the many free performances held at Chicago’s Grant Park,” said Acting RTA Executive Director Leanne Redden.
Riders can use the RTA’s Trip Planner to plan travel and select routes with handicap accessible services when necessary. It is the only online site in the region that provides a variety of options for getting around our region, including transit, walking, bicycling and driving.
