 State of Good Repair Needs
• A federal report shows transit agencies nationwide are struggling to
  maintain aging assets
• In spite of investments in CTA’s assets, the 5-year unfunded capital
  need is $6.8 billion
• Nationwide deferred maintenance backlog:
   – $50 billion - largest seven agencies (including CTA)
   – $78 billion – 690 systems

      zones                                temporary measures

State of Good Repair Projects
• Track on the Loop and the South Red Line and structure rehabilitation
  system-wide are needed for slow zone elimination
• Signal System and Traction Power Upgrades will provide modern,
  reliable systems
• Station Upgrades system-wide will improve accessibility and customer
  comfort

       • 19% of all weekday and 23% of all weekend CTA Rail
            Trips
 • 21 stations, only 6 ADA accessible
 • 9.5 miles long

               Project Purpose

• Bring existing crucial stations, track systems and
  structures into a state of good repair
• Reduce travel times
• Improve access to job markets and other destinations
• Respond to shifts in travel demand
• Better use existing transit infrastructure
• Provide access to persons with disabilities
• Support the area’s economic development initiatives
  and current transit supportive development patterns
                     Project Need
• Infrastructure is significantly past its useful life; many parts
  are over 100 years old
• Continued degradation could increase cost of maintenance
  and compromise service in the future
• Community relies on these facilities for all trip types
• Improvements are needed to make stations ADA accessible
• Transit trip times are delayed and unreliable due to
  antiquated infrastructure
• Volume of passengers cannot be accommodated on the
  currently congested road network or through bus
  transportation alternatives
• Project area population is growing and is highly transit-
  reliant and diverse
