  • September 10, 2014 - Chicago Union Station Master Plan: Looking to the Future | As a hub for Metra and Amtrak trains, Chicago Union Station (CUS) is one of the region’s most important transportation facilities and economic drivers. Based on passenger traffic, it would currently rank among the ten busiest airports in the country. It currently operates close to capacity and is at risk of being unable to accommodate sustained ridership growth from both commuter rail and improved intercity passenger rail. Learn about the award-winning, multiagency master planning process that began in 2010 and is now nearing completion. Its recommendations will guide station improvements and capacity increases that will serve the region for generations to come. A short tour of the station will be conducted at the conclusion of the presentation, focusing on pointing out areas where improvements and capacity increases are proposed.   Questions?
