South Suburban Transit Corridors

Ron Lanz, Landvision Inc.

The Chicago Southland Transit corridors are a vital asset to the region. With an extensive network of routes, relatively high frequencies of service, and lower commute times, the south suburban transit corridors provide employees with easy and affordable access to Chicago's downtown loop. They also provide the City of Chicago's residents and workforce with access to affordable and accessible housing alternatives while maintaining an exceptional quality of life. These positive attributes, combined with the accompanying quality-of-life benefits make the Southland Transit Region a great opportunity for the development community. Join us for a discussion about the transit assets of this metropolitan sub-region and find out how you can contribute toward and benefit from its potential.
