Description

In partnership with DePaul’s Chaddick Institute, the RTA will be holding a half-day workshop on transit-oriented planning in our region. This year’s theme, Making an Impact, focuses on plan implementation and will feature presentations and discussions from a variety of speakers, including staff from municipal government and transit agencies, as well as private-sector developers. The event will highlight current regional case studies of successful transit-oriented plan implementation that have resulted in benefits such as public infrastructure improvements and transit-oriented development projects. This free event will be held on Wednesday, March 8th, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the DePaul Center in downtown Chicago.

To reach the North Cafe, enter the building through the Barnes and Noble bookstore at Jackson and State, walk through the store and take the elevator bank on the left hand side to the 11th floor. Upon arriving on the 11th floor, head towards the window wall and follow that hallway towards the cafeteria area. The North Café will be located on your right just before you reach the service/dining room.
