The CTA has more than 224 miles of railroad tracks across Chicago and surrounding suburbs, serving the agency’s eight rail lines. In an average weekday, there are about 2,200 train trips making stops at the system’s 145 rail stations. For more than 100 years, the ‘L’ has offered a unique perspective of Chicago.
In the first-ever documentation of its kind, the CTA has created a ride along the length of each rail line. Shot in HD, you can now experience the ‘L’ like never before from the vantage point of the rail operator. You can even transfer between lines.
Hop aboard, and enjoy the ride.
