RTA logo Hanover Park - County Farm Road Transit Service Study

Study Description

This project consisted of a transportation feasibility study to identify potential transit options along County Farm Road, for the ten mile segment between Lake Street on the north and Roosevelt Road / the DuPage County Government Center on the south. The service recommendations addressed access to the Hanover Park Metra Station, the DuPage County Government Center, and multiple businesses and places of employment along the corridor. Project tasks included public involvement, a mobility needs assessment, service recommendations and implementation strategies. The Village of Hanover Park led the study, with the towns of Roselle, Carol Stream, Bloomingdale, Winfield, and Wheaton serving on the project steering committee.
