RTA logo City of Chicago Metra Station Area Typology Study

Study Description

The project assigned development typologies to all 77 Metra stations within the City of Chicago. These typologies provide a guide for elected officials and developers to identify opportunities for appropriate TOD development in the station areas, maximize access to transit, build ridership and support the surrounding community. This plan complements the Transit Friendly Development Guide completed by the City and the CTA in 2009, which created typologies for all CTA rail stations.
