City of Chicago and Metra Station Typology Study, 2014
5 minutes Date Enacted: Oct 16, 2014
On October 16, 2014, the Chicago Plan Commission adopted the City of Chicago & Metra Station Typology Study, which created a classification system of station area typologies for Metra stations located within Chicago. Funded by the Regional Transportation Authority and the City of Chicago, the project assigned a typology for each of the City’s 79 existing and planned stations based on local characteristics such as land use mix, intensity of development around the station, ridership, mode of access to the station (e.g. walking, driving, or transit), and availability of parking.
