The country’s second largest public transit transportation system is operated by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA). There are 1,865 buses that make an estimated 19,000 trips a day. The train operates over 224.1 miles and has 1,356 rail cars. On select routes, the major rail lines and some bus routes offer a Night Owl service during late and early morning hours.
The most common accidents can be caused by sudden starts and stops, speeding, and operator intoxication. According to the Federal Transit Administration, there is an average of one bus accident a day in Chicago. Because it is a mass transit accident, there are usually a large number of victims and the injuries can be devastating. It is important to know your rights and contact a mass transit accident lawyer in Chicago to explore your legal options.
