Capital Projects

Regional Capital Program

Download Capital Dataset

 

Capital programming is a core function of the RTA. RTA and the Service Boards have worked to articulate as well as advance a capital strategy for transit projects in the Chicagoland region.

Priority Projects have been identified by the Service Boards. These priority projects were defined in the Invest in Transit Regional Transit Strategic Plan and are updated on an annual basis. This page shows details about the funding for each priority project.

The 2022-2026 5-Year Regional Capital Program includes over 200 projects that are advancing many of these Priority Projects. The capital projects are also shown in the table below, organized by Priority Project. Each project listing shows the amount of funding programmed in the 2022-2026 Regional Capital Program. Each listing also shows the core requirement(s) and strategic goals that each project helps to address, as defined in the region’s new performance-based capital allocation process.

Notably, the region has committed to dedicating 20% of programmed funds to projects that fulfill the core requirements of improving equity or achieving full accessibility for 2025 and beyond as a part of the new performance-based capital allocation process. 

The Service Boards have met and exceeded the 20% goal for the 2025 and 2026 budget years. Detailed analysis of the core requirements and strategic goals can be found in the Regional Transit Operating Budget and Capital Program

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

Construct a tie house (at the intersection of Milwaukee/Canal/Lake Street) and two new substations (at
Barry/Kimball intersection and Damen/Milwaukee intersection) to support traction power needs on the
Blue Line. These assets will support increasing ridership demands as well as the power needed to
support 5000 and 7000 series rail cars. The location of the tie house and substations were determined
by the Blue Line Load Flow study, which identified areas that were likely to experience traction power
issues.

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

This project funds the long-term railcar replacement program and will purchase up to 500 state-of-the-art railcars. The modern, multilevel railcars will offer a smoother and more comfortable ride. Metra's new railcars will have two entranceways on each side with doors nearly level to the platform which will improve the speed of boarding and deboarding at each station. Boarding will require only one step to enter and faster wheelchair lifts will bridge the slight difference between the station platform and the floor of the railcars.
