If you live or travel through south Cook County or north Will County, Cook County DoTH wants to hear

Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways (DoTH) is partnering with Pace and Metra to improve transit service and reduce fares in south Cook County. The Fair Transit pilot will start with a 50% fare reduction on the Metra Electric and Rock Island lines and enhanced service on Pace’s Halsted 352 route. Your support and engagement is critical to the pilot’s success – learn about opportunities to get involved and take the pre-pilot survey by visiting www.cookcountyil.gov/FAIRTRANSIT.

Background: Cook County’s Department of Transportation and Highways (DoTH), under the leadership of President Toni Preckwinkle, is working towards a partnership with the region’s transit agencies to launch a three-year pilot project to improve transit service and lower costs for the residents of the south side of Chicago, south suburban Cook and north Will Counties.

The pilot is anticipated to kick-off in early 2021 by establishing a 50 percent reduction in Metra fares on the Metra Electric and Rock Island Lines and improved service and frequency on Pace along Halsted, a future Pulse Corridor. The County will underwrite costs for each participating agency.

The Fair Transit pilot will provide south Cook County and north Will County residents with greater opportunities to make transit their choice for getting to work, school, shopping and regional destinations. Read more.
