Maps & Statistics

The Regional Transportation Authority Mapping & Statistics (RTAMS) website is a tool developed by the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) for retrieving planning and financial information on the public transportation system in the RTA service area, which is served by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), Metra commuter rail, and Pace suburban bus.

  • Updated menus for easier navigation
  • Data downloading capabilities
  • New content such as:
    • Data Transparency Portal content
    • Document / Report Library
  • Search function
  • Improved data visualizations and infographics
  • “Responsive” design for varied browsers and devices, including phones and tablets
  • Improved ADA compliance
  • Plus many others…
