History
The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) is an independent
governmental agency created by state legislation. The CTA began
operating on October 1, 1947, after it acquired the properties of
the Chicago Rapid Transit Company and the Chicago Surface
Lines. October 1, 1952, CTA became the sole operator of the
Chicago transit when it purchased the Chicago Motor Coach
system.
Operations and Service Area
The Chicago Transit Authority operates the nation’s second largest
public transportation system. Today CTA operates Bus and Rail
systems which serve a population of 3.9 million in Chicago and 40
surrounding suburbs and CTA average weekday rider ship on bus
system is 1.13 million and 0.64 million on rail system.
RAIL OPERATIONS
CTA’s 1,190 rapid transit cars operate over eight routes and
222 miles of track. CTA trains provide about 500,000
customer trips each day and serve 143 stations. CTA rail
routes travel over numerous overpasses, underpasses and
grade crossings. CTA rail routes total 222.6 route miles of
which 35.8 are on elevated structure, 20.6 miles are on
elevated embankment, and 35 miles are at grade level. In
addition both the Red Line and the Blue Line travel a portion
of their routes through 11.4 miles subway tunnels.
MISSION STATEMENT
It is the objective of the Chicago Transit Authority to provide
safe, clean, on-time courteous and efficient service to its
passengers while minimizing vandalism and property damage
associated with all of the Authority’s vehicles and facilities. To
this end, it is the responsibility of all of the Authority’s
employees to make sure we provide service in the most secure
manner possible.
