Western and Ashland Corridors
Bus Rapid Transit

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), in partnership with the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT), Department of Housing and Economic Development (DHED), and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), performed an Alternatives Analysis planning study in 2012 as a means of exploring options for a variety of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) features and service on both Western and Ashland Avenues.

The Western and Ashland Corridor Alternatives Analysis has now concluded.

Please visit our Ashland BRT page to learn more about the planning process, the results of the Alternatives Analysis, next steps, and how to stay involved or comment on the project.
