Subway Underground Underwater Emergency Exit

This map shows the location of the project. For projects that do not have a specific location but affect a line/route or the entire system, either the affected lines/routes are shown, or an entire service area map is shown.

If you select the option to “toggle the benefit layer,” you will see an approximation of the area that will benefit from the project.

Project Description

The vision for this project is to secure CTA’s underground and underwater tunnel subway system and emergency exits by leveraging technology to fill the security deficiencies in the physical tunnel infrastructure that otherwise would be prohibitively expensive and improbable to achieve with humans. The goal is to create a comprehensive yet sustainable solution that ultimately prevents, detects, tracks, authorizes, and responds to all human activity in the restricted, non-public areas of the tunnels.
