Bus Rapid Transit: Ashland BRT Corridor Mapping Tool

The City of Chicago is building bus rapid transit (BRT) in the Loop in 2015, and planning BRT on several other corridors. The plan published in 2013 for BRT on Ashland Avenue would meet international “gold” standards and serve one out of every ten Chicagoans along this important north-south route running from Irving Park Road to 95th Street. 

MPC is working to ensure that, along with new transit options, a BRT line would generate economic and community development that improves access to jobs and quality of life for the city’s residents. Permanent, iconic transit stations planned for the route can and should serve as community hubs and attract both residential and retail development.

This mapping tool, which focuses on the central segment of Ashland Avenue BRT from Cortland to 31st streets (approximately five miles), provides in-depth information about development opportunities, demographics and amenities within a half mile of the planned route.
