In accordance with the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Act, the RTA is currently in the process of updating the region’s transit Strategic Plan, which will serve as a road map for regional transit and will help to guide the decisions made over the next five years.

The RTA strongly believes that input from municipal governments is vital to ensuring that the Strategic Plan addresses the emerging issues that face our public transit system in Northeastern Illinois. That’s why the RTA is asking municipal officials and residents from across the RTA region to complete an online survey on the vision, goals and objectives laid out in the region’s current Strategic Plan, Moving Beyond Congestion, which was released in 2007. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes and closes on January 25, 2013.

Please help guide the future of transit in Northeastern Illinois by participating in the RTA’s on-line Strategic Plan survey available at

Please feel free to call Claire Serdiuk-Anderson from the RTA at (312) 913-3220 or email at with any questions or concerns.
