Study Description

This project addressed two elements of public transportation within the Village. The first project component reviewed the current level of local public transportation service and identified connectivity, usage, and service area improvements to destinations within the Village and the region. The second component developed a station area plan for a proposed station within the Village on the proposed Metra STAR Line.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2007

After completing an Alternatives Analysis for the STAR Line in 2012, Metra chose not to continue to pursue the project due to a variety of factors.

In fall of 2015 the Village was awarded CMAQ funding for covered bicycle parking at the Mount Prospect Metra station through the RTA's Access to Transit Improvement Program.
