    Is the BRT going to Ashland instead of Western or in addition to? I thought Western had already been chosen.

  • Just Ashland for now, although Western may be a possibility in the future. A WBEZ report a few months ago leaked that the city was planning to built BRT on Ashland between the Orange Line and the O’Hare Line, which is pretty much what they’re doing for the first phase.
