The City of Evanston is conducting a Transit Oriented Development Study focusing on the CTA (Purple Line) and Metra Main Street Stations in Evanston. The study is intended to enhance multi-modal mobility between the Main Street Stations, the Main Street Business District and surrounding neighborhoods. Proposed improvements for the Main Street station and study area will be presented for public comment.

The City has partnered with the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) through its Community Planning Program to conduct the study. The RTA Community Planning program is designed to assist communities in creating more transit-friendly and multi-modal places. The purpose of the public meeting is to gather and consider community input on the study.
