The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) has launched a new tool so that you know when public transportation is crowded to help limit your exposure to Coronavirus:
Chicago Transit Authority has launched an ridership information dashboard to help passengers avoid travelling at the busiest times during the coronavirus pandemic.
CTA and the Chicago Department of Public Health have set capacity limits of 15 passengers on a standard bus and 22 on an articulated bus or metro car.
The first component of the dashboard at transitchicago.com covers CTA’s 127 bus routes. The average ridership during the past two weeks and the established capacity limits on each route are used to produce a colour-coded guide that indicates likely space availability by route and hour. The information is to be updated weekly.
