Enjoy a Day in Our Region: Ride On. to Get There

October 17, 2017


Part of the work the RTA does is promote transit ridership. We want to do all we can to share the benefits of transit ridership with regional visitors and residents. We are fortunate to have our transit system—so many areas in our country don’t—and we want it to be here for future generations.

We encourage ridership through this blog, press releases, social media, features on our website and more.

Recently, we partnered with ABC7 to present “The Perfect Chicago Day,” an exclusive series of videos featured on its social media platform.  ABC produced the videos and we want to share them with you.

Looking for ideas on where to go on a date using transit?  Here are some ideas.


Are you a history buff who wants to take a deep dive into stories of our past and wants to be able to take a bus or train to get there? Ask and you shall receive.


Are you a parent in need of ideas for entertaining your kids? Kids love transit and they’re our future riders!


Not only will we plan your perfect day for you, we’ll tell you exactly how to get there. Ride On.
