The CTA's Proposed Circle Line

You may or may not have heard about the proposed CTA Circle line. For those of you who aren't familiar with the project, it's objective is to link all of the CTA's and Metra's lines, from 39th to Fullerton and Lake Michigan to Western. The routes still under consideration include an Ashland corridor and an Ashland/Ogden Corridor, so if you live on Ashland this would be of particular interest to you. The CTA is going to be presenting their Screen 2 Alternative Analysis study at three different venues this week. The study examines all possible transit options and ultimately determine a locally preferred alternative.

Tuesday, Sept. 26th - Bucktown/Wicker Park Library 6-8pm
1701 N Milwaukee, 2nd Flr Community Room
Weds, Sept. 27th - National Teachers Academy 6-8pm
55 W Cermak - Lunch Room/Auditorium
Thursday, Sept 28th - First Baptist Church 6-8pm
1613 W Washington - Community Room

It seems like it could potentially be a great new alternative for the CTA and opens up some areas that have little to no el access. For more detailed information on the project check out the CTA's website.
