The RTA is in the process of executing a contract with the TMA of Lake-Cook to assist with the development and implementation of additional Shuttle Bugs throughout the region. Once potential routes are identified and developed in conjunction with the Service Boards, ICE funding will be combined with private sector financial contributions to fund the operation of the routes.
2008 ICE: $636
2010 ICE: $254,606
2012 ICE: $944,758
The RTA Board approved this project at its December 18, 2013 meeting. The RTA, CTA, Metra, Pace, and TMA of Lake-Cook, based on their analysis of the markets for the Shuttle Bug service, are focusing on the Oak Brook, Downers Grove, and Rolling Meadows/Schaumburg areas. Employee surveying is completed in the Golf Road area and ongoing in Oak Brook and Downers Grove. Once the survey data is analyzed, the RTA, TMA of Lake Cook, CTA, Metra, and Pace will make a determination on where to pursue specific shuttle bug opportunities.
