Chicago Transit Authority: Behind the L
Chicago Ideas Week
Saturday, Oct 22, 2016 10:00 – 1:00 PM @ CTA Control Center (Racine)
The CTA is a central part of life for anyone who lives in Chicago. Nearly everyone in the city has interacted with a bus driver or train operator, but it’s easy to ignore all of the planning, support and communication that goes into running the system. At this Lab, will get a behind-the-scenes look at the CTA’s control room, and learn about how the organization is using technology and innovation to make its service better for the entire city. Participants will walk away with an intimate understanding of everything that the CTA is doing to make your commute less painful.
