The River North and Streeterville neighborhoods arguably have some of the best CTA services in all of Chicago. But there are holes in the tapestry, including the need for faster transit options from Union Station and the Ogilvie Transportation Center in the West Loop to better serve the thousands of people commuting to jobs, downtown residents and tourists going shopping, to restaurants and the lakeshore.
A public meeting will be held Wednesday to receive public input on the River North-Streeterville transit study and to offer solutions. The goal of the study, which began early this year, is to identify new transit services that would improve access and mobility between the West Loop and River North and Streeterville. A final alternative would then be selected next year.
The open house-style meeting will be hosted by the Chicago Department of Transportation from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Loyola University Water Tower campus in Lewis Towers’ Regents Hall, 111 E. Pearson St., Chicago.
