AN INITIAL CHICAGO NORTH SUBURBAN TRANSIT IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. 1971-1975. VOLUME I. REPORT AND EXHIBITS

The study undertakes to determine transportation planning objectives for the Chicago commuter-shed along the North Shore and the Skokie Valley, the northern portion of Cook County and the southern part of Lake County. Travel and population characteristics are reviewed. Travel analysis and projections are made. After existing rail service and parking facilities are reviewed, commuter parking needs and alternatives to the Skokie Swift are evaluated. A review of existing bus service, the development of a suburban bus service concept, and the evaluation of expanded suburban bus service follow the section on rail alternatives. Land use and mass transportation, the development of proposals and costs and an implementation program conclude the report. (Author)
