SolidLine is partnering with the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) of Northeastern Illinois to produce a series of training videos, and we’re excited to share the first video with you! The RTA is developing this Mobility Management Series to teach customers with disabilities and older adults how to ride the Chicago region’s public transportation system. We’ve had the pleasure of filming all over the Chicagoland area to obtain footage of customers using mobility devices on Metra trains, CTA trains & buses, and Pace buses and vehicles. We will film an accessible taxi for our next video. The SLM Crew is having a blast working with the RTA on such an exciting and important project!

“The RTA is committed to assuring regional riders are aware of the accessibility features of the regional transportation system,” said Deané Rosen, RTA’s Manager of Mobility Education. “That is why we are working with SolidLine to produce this video series. The crew is passionate about the project and we know that will be reflected in all the videos we produce. We encourage residents to view them at https://www.youtube.com/user/RTAchicagoland.”
