09/22/2014

CHICAGO, IL - Today, State Representative Elgie Sims joined other local elected officials in announcing a $240 million Terminal Improvement Project for the 95th Street/Dan Ryan CTA terminal.

Funded through a partnership of state, city and federal funding, the Project will expand and greatly improve the 95th/Dan Ryan station to bring significant improvements to a station that serves thousands of customers each day and is a vital part of the South Side transportation infrastructure. The Project will also create over 700 construction jobs and hundreds of permanent jobs following completion.

"The Terminal Improvement Project is essential to continued growth and revitalization of the economy of the south side of Chicago and the southland. This project, along with the recently concluded renovations to the Red Line will help create another link between workers in this area and businesses along the Red Line," Sims said.

Built in 1969, the station serves as both a train terminal and an integrated bus terminal. The station is one of CTA’s busiest, with approximately 20,000 riders, 24-hour Red Line service and over 1,000 CTA and Pace bus trips on a typical weekday. These buses connect Far South Side communities to the CTA rail network. There are roughly 300,000 people who live within walking distance of the CTA bus routes serving the 95th/Dan Ryan Terminal.
