RTA logo 31st Street - New Bus Route

Project Description

New fixed route service along the 31st street corridor between Cicero Avenue and King Drive operating 7 days a week from 5:00 am until 8:00 pm. Route will improve mobility and access to an employment center, rail lines, and other bus routes for low income individuals, seniors, and the disabled.

Program:Job Access Reverse Commute / New Freedom / Section 5310
Program Type:JARC/NF
Program Year:2009
Project Type(s):Operating
Current Activities:CTA did not have sufficient funds to meet federal local matching requirements to carry out the project as originally proposed. However, beginning September 2, 2012 CTA extended Route No. 35 to incorporate a segment of the 31st Street route between Kedzie and Cicero Avenues. The new route segment originally was to operate through August 2013 and then be evaluated. In October 2013 the CTA Board approved making the route extension permanent. The service provided 133,927 trips in June 2014.
