Transportation Tuesday: Making the Connection – How the RTA’s Interagency Signage Program Helps Solve a Complex Regional Problem
For most, wayfinding signage is likely only thought about if it isn’t there when needed. But in those moments, it becomes clear that signage is a crucial part of a rider’s transit experience. Given that the northeastern Illinois region is home to three transit operators—CTA, Metra, and Pace—it’s surprisingly complex to ensure that signage to guide riders making connections between services is accurate, uniform, accessible, and installed where it’s needed. The RTA’s Interagency Signage Program provides design standards and pulls various interests together to coordinate sign placement throughout the region’s transit system. So far, the program has installed more than 1,000 signs at major transfer points to ensure a more seamless rider experience. Learn more about the process and hear from representatives from Aurora on how the RTA’s coordination has had a positive impact on their community.
