NORTHWEST PASSAGE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT

The Northwest Passage was designed to provide a convenient pedestrian interchange between a commuter railroad and a rapid transit line in the Chicago area. A modern weather-protected connecting passageway between C and NW's suburban concourse in the main passenger terminal and the mezzanine level of the Clinton-Lake station on CTA's Lake-Dan Ryan rapid transit route was constructed. The Clinton-Lake transit station was rehabilitated. Objectives of study were to: (1) Determine effect of rider use of Passage on C and NW, CTA's rapid transit line and other transportation modes; (2) ascertain characteristics of riders gained or lost and reasons for use of each particular mode, etc.
