Chicago Region Transit On-Time Performance
CMAP, as part of the Regional Indicators Project and the Congestion Management Process, has collected and summarized transit on-time performance data for transit operators in the Chicago region.
The Chicago Transit Authority’s on-time performance consistently improved during 2009, and stayed relatively steady for 2010. Metra’s and Amtrak’s on-time performance is greatly affected by freight interference. Metra lines that do not interact with freight travel have the highest on-time service. Amtrak’s recent improvement in on-time performance could be accounted for by lower than normal freight volumes due to the recent recession.
More information and graphics relating to regional transit performance can be found on-line. Other regional transportation performance measures, including transit performance measures can be found on MetroPulse, part of the Regional Indicators Project partnership between CMAP and the Chicago Community Trust.
