$350 Million Superloop Streetcar System Being Studied

March 6, 2015

The Gazette reports  an old mode of transportation not seen in Chicago since the 1950s may be coming back if the Chicago Streetcar Renaissance (CSR) group has its way.

 

The group is conducting an extensive economic analysis for a more than six-mile streetcar system, which would start at Ogilvie Transportation Center and Union Station and extend to Navy Pier, McCormick Place, and the museum campus.

 

The $235,000 study covers an area the organization coins as the city’s “Superloop.” CSR is teaming with HDR Engineering, former Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) planners, and faculty at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Urban Transportation Center, and they expect results of the report to be ready by summer.
