Board Meetings

In accordance with Governor J.B. Pritzker’s “stay at home” order, the RTA staff is continuing its work for the region remotely. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, RTA Board of Directors and committee meetings will be held online at www.rtachicago.org to ensure the health and safety of all staff, Board members, and the public. The Board and committees typically meet at 9:00 a.m. on the third Thursday of each month. Complete meeting packets are posted at least 48 hours prior to the meetings. Video of every RTA Board meeting is streamed live and then stored in the Meetings Archive, which has recordings since December 2014. For recordings prior to that, please call the RTA main office at (312) 913-3200.  

RTA encourages public participation in this electronic meeting by inviting interested parties to provide comment to the following email address: communications@rtachicago.org. Comments will be accepted until April 15, 2020, at noon. Comments relative to RTA business will be read into the record on April 16, 2020.
