A Study of the Usage Potential of a Proposed Expanded Commuter Rail Station at Chicago State University

The Chicago State University (CSU) NEXTRANS team worked with the CSU administration to develop surveys addressing potential improvements to student commutes that would occur due to possible improvements in the 95th Street Metra station, and to model current and theoretical commute times, which indicated what areas might be under‐recruited by Chicago State University relatively to their current commuting times. Beyond the general goal of aiding CSU in the development of the new transportation center, the study allowed CSU students and geographic information systems (GIS) faculty to integrate transportation GIS within its existing GIS program as well as receive training in transportation GIS and related GIS areas.
