The most opportunities to increase the number of people who ride transit to work in Cook County lies in the outer ring suburbs, where interchanges and disconnected towns leave residents with no choice but to spend hours each day stuck in traffic on the way to and from work.
Extending the Blue Line northwest through the I-90 Corridor to Schaumburg and west along I-88 to Oak Brook would go a long way toward solving that problem.
