The project improvements to existing assets to make them partially or fully accessible. Including station/stop and area improvements, vehicle accessibility, and accessible communications.

The project impact to ratings from the FTA Transit Economic Requirements Model (TERM).

The project’s minor or major benefits to riders and what proportion of the agency’s riders will benefit from it.

The project impact on overall capacity, reflecting current and planned levels of utilization.

The project impact on reductions or offsets to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated from transit operations.

Project impacts on land use and development, construction, and long-term jobs.

The distribution of project benefits to location(s) identified under the USDOT Justice40 Program.

The project impact to maintenance or improvement of exposure to risk for riders/employees and the project impact to security enhancement.

The project impact on operating costs.

The project impact to maintenance or improvement of exposure to risk for riders/employees and the project impact to security enhancement.

Project impact on maintenance or improvement of service speed and reliability, considering both direct and indirect impacts.

If required, whether or not the project complies with federal, state, local, or other regulatory mandates.

The project impact to climate benefits, such as a reduction in emissions, generated from mode shift to transit and away from private auto-use.

Project Description

Design and construction of stations of the Pulse 95th Rapid Transit Line. The project corridor is approximately 12.4 miles in length and runs east-west between the CTA Red Line 95th/Dan Ryan Station in Chicago and Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills primarily routed along 95th Street, as well as several other roadways in Bridgeview, Chicago Ridge, Hickory Hills, and Palos Hills. The proposed line would include connections to other transit services including the CTA Red Line 95th/Dan Ryan Station and other CTA routes, other Pace bus routes, Metra Rock Island District Line Longwood Station, Metra Southwest Service, and Oak Lawn Patriot Station. As Pace’s third anticipated Pulse line, the 95th Street service will improve connectivity and increase transit service levels through higher frequencies, travel time savings, and station amenities. The Pulse 95th Street Line will connect to the Pulse Halsted Line, and eventually to the Pulse Harlem and Cicero Lines.
