One Chart Explains All the Chicagoland Transit Reform Proposals
Several different proposals to fund and govern Chicagoland’s transit system have recently been floated by various area politicians and interest groups. Streetsblog has created this handy chart to compare each of the proposals to one another, and to how the system currently works. Click to open the chart in a new window.
The chart compares the existing system and four proposals:
- State senator Daniel Biss’s proposal for new service divisions
- Governor Pat Quinn’s Northeastern Illinois Transit Task Force’s report, particularly the “model example”
- The Transportation for Illinois Coalition’s proposal for higher state gas taxes
- Transit Future’s proposal for Cook County transit funding
The chart will be updated as more information becomes available and as new proposals emerge, so check back as events happen.
