The City of Chicago is bringing The Loop Link to the Central Loop.
It’s a fast, easy and reliable option for getting around Chicago’s congested downtown, connecting people to jobs, businesses and attractions from Union and Ogilvie Stations to Michigan Avenue. Similar to “L” trains, the Loop Link moves people quickly using dedicated bus lanes while making limited stops at train-like stations along the way.
The Loop Link uses dedicated lanes on Washington, Madison, Clinton and Canal to move people through downtown, improving reliability and speed for six bus routes in the area and extending benefits to neighborhoods throughout the city where these routes originate.
Bicycle travel in the Loop has also improved with protected bike lanes on Washington, Randolph and Clinton. In addition, the new Union Station Transit Center will help connect Metra and Amtrak riders to the CTA network, providing easy access to downtown destinations.
The project will strengthen Chicago’s economy by improving access to jobs and attractions downtown, while generating foot traffic to businesses along the way. By making it easier to get to work and go about daily activities, Loop Link improves everyday life for residents, employees and visitors.
