Bus Rapid Transit Heads for Chicago’s Loop

The $32 million plan includes new bus stations along the two mile stretch used by nearly 21,000 commuters each weekday

Transportation officials in the next couple of weeks will begin a project to bring Bus Rapid Transit to Chicago's Loop, hoping to ultimately double the average speed of buses traveling through the neighborhood.

When the project is completed later this year, six bus routes will use dedicated lanes on Washington, Madison, Clinton and Canal.

The $32 million plan dubbed "Loop Link" includes new bus stations along the two mile stretch used by nearly 21,000 commuters each weekday.

Full details of the project and plan are on the Chicago Department of Transportation's website.
