Study Description

This project created a transit-oriented development and transit improvement plan, focusing on the Town's Metra station, two CTA stations (Cicero and 54th / Cermak) and eleven Pace and CTA bus routes. The plan provides recommendations to improve mobility and connections between transit services, stimulate TOD investment in the Town's transit station areas, and connect dense housing areas with transit, walkable commercial development and job centers.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2012
Project Type(s):Transit-Oriented Development Plan, Transit Improvement Plan
Grantee:Town of Cicero
Current Activities:The Plan was adopted by the Town Board on November 11, 2014. The Town has initiated some implementation efforts by securing federal CMAQ funding from the RTA's Access to Transit Program. This funding is for the installation of ten bus shelters at key, high ridership CTA bus stops. The project area is well served by transit, namely CTA Routes 54, 21, 60, 12 and 35; Pace Routes 302, 305, and 392; the Metra BNSF Cicero Station, and the CTA Pink Rail Line. The shelters will also include a fabricated bench and a small trash receptacle; lighting will also be provided.
