Although Illinois has moved into Phase 5 of its reopening plan, masks are still required on public transit under guidance from the federal government. To support that message, RTA, CTA, Metra, and Pace launched a joint advertising campaign asking everyone to responsibly return to transit.

Created by the State of Illinois, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) coordinates the Chicago region’s transit system, oversees its financing with transparency and accountability, and plans for a future with adequate, accessible, and equitable public transportation for the six counties of Northeastern Illinois.
The RTA Board adopted the Invest in Transit plan in 2018 to set a bold vision and goals for our regional transit system over the next five years.
The RTA sends a twice-monthly e-newsletter with important information about the transit system, including the regional response to COVID-19. Click the button below to subscribe.
