RTA logo Bensenville Transit Improvement Plan and Station Area Study

Study Description

In the spring of 2010 the Village of Bensenville engaged a planning process to assess the potential for improving the community's overall transportation system and revitalizing its main road corridors and Downtown train station area. Increasing transit ridership and facilitating new development along the roadways as well as in downtown was key goals of the Study.

The study consisted of two primary areas; land use development in downtown and along major transit corridors and a transit improvement plan for existing and potential transit. The downtown plan assessed the short and long-term potential of redeveloping key parcels in downtown. The process evaluated land use redevelopment project potentials along key transit corridors including York Road, Green Street, and County that would enhance the transit system over time. The planning process also included a comprehensive analysis of the Villages existing and potential transit services. Recommendations took into consideration the potential expansion of the western terminal at O'Hare airport and the proposed roadway changes due to the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway Corridor.
