As our state and nation continue to recover from the pandemic, public transit remains an essential service, responsible for transporting health care employees, emergency responders, and retail workers to jobs throughout the region.
The Chicago region is now in Phase 4 of Gov. J.B. Pritzker's Restore Illinois plan and the RTA, CTA, Metra, and Pace are expecting an increase in transit ridership compared to when the "stay at home" order was in effect.
The RTA is sending regular e-mail communications about the COVID-19 pandemic, recovery, and effects on the transit system. Sign up to receive those e-mails here.
In addition, to prepare riders who may be using the system for the first time in several months, the RTA has published "Ready to Ride Again? A guide for returning safely to the Chicago region’s transit system." The guide provides five best practices for riding transit safely and consolidates information about how each transit agency is cleaning its vehicles, providing space for social distancing, and rebuilding confidence in the system.
