Serving the six-county region of approximately 8.3 million people, the Chicago regional transportation network is the third largest system in the nation.   Amid recent developments, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), the system’s governing and oversight body, is under increasing scrutiny and analysis. Questions about how the RTA will change or what (if anything) will replace the current model are commonplace in the media, electoral campaigns, and policy circles. 

Managing and planning for a multi-modal transit network for a growing and complex region is no easy task.  

Join GCI’s expert panelists who will discuss options for the future of regional transportation governance in the Chicago metropolitan area.
