Regional Capital Program

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 are updated on an annual basis. This page shows details about the funding for each priority project.

The 2024-2028 5-Year Regional Capital Program includes over 250 projects that are advancing many of these Priority Projects. The capital projects are shown in the table below, organized by Priority Project and can also be seen in a mapped form on the RTA Capital Projects Dashboard. Each project listing shows the amount of funding programmed in the 2024-2028 Regional Capital Program. Beginning with the 2024-2028 Capital Program, projects are evaluated based on 15 measures which were identified in the new Regional Transit Strategic Plan, Transit is the Answer. All projects in the 2024-2028 program show the detailed evaluations in this site.

The metrics include evaluations of Equity and Accessibility which are used in the performance-based allocation process. The region has committed to dedicating 20% of programmed funds to projects that fulfill the regional goals of improving equity and 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 2025-2028 budget years.

Detailed analysis of the capital evaluation metrics is included in the Regional Transit Operating Budget and Capital Program

Project Details

Description
Life Extending Overhaul - Up to 430 Standard (1000 Series) - This project will overhaul the engine and other major sub-components to provide the minimal amount of work necessary to keep the fleet going. By end of FY2020 630 buses will have met their estimated 12 year life expectancy. This extension would extend the bus life by four years. The life extension for the 40 foot 1000-1629 New Flyer Bus is essential to keeping a majority of the CTA fleet running in optimal condition. The current fleet of 40 foot NF buses is over 1000 buses. This project is essential to meet availability requirements for CTA. These buses were purchased in 2006-2007 and this life extension is essential to maintaining peak availability requirements at all 7 bus garages.

Description
Funding will be targeted at preventive maintenance projects at various CTA facilities systemwide. These projects will improve CTA's capacity to maintain stations and improve customer comfort and safety. CTA's Facilities department will identify stations for this targeted preventive maintenance work, driven by regular field audits performed by maintenance staff. Projects currently anticipated for this funding source may include leak remediation and grouting in stations; rehabilitation of CTA elevators and escalators (ADA); ceiling, roof or canopy repair / patching; lighting upgrades; painting and signage, among other items. This work will be performed by CTA maintenance forces with material procured as part of this project. Work will be conducted throughout the system and is considered routine preventive maintenance.

Project Details

Description
Funding for this project will provide for an ongoing capital maintenance program that consists of tasks necessary to keep buses in service through systematic inspection, detection, and prevention of incipient failure. CTA’s scheduled maintenance program consists of planned preventive maintenance work to maintain bus performance. While major overhaul work is performed on a mid-life cycle basis, additional focused maintenance work is required at certain intervals, outside of the mid-life overhaul, during the life of buses. When certain maintenance tasks are needed to repair or replace, before it reaches its end of useful life and failing with an increased frequency, specific component campaign work is conducted.
