SHARE RTA launches new, mobile-friendly website

The Regional Transportation Authority launched a redesigned website Wednesday for Chicago area commuters.

The RTA website saw more than 5 million visits last year, according to a statement from the agency. The website features a new design and is more mobile-friendly. Users can also visit the site to plan a trip via RTA, CTA, Pace, Metra and ADA Paratransit, the statement said.

“Our online visitors will now experience a more vibrant and seamless view of how the RTA works as a whole with the service boards, municipalities and transit advocates,” said Leanne Redden, RTA Executive Director.  “We hope visitors will find this website easy to use, whether they come online to plan a trip or examine the latest regional budget information.”

The RTA website address is the same and can be viewed by visiting http://www.RTAchicago.org.
