The future of paratransit in metropolitan Chicago was addressed in a February 28, 2024, article published by Streetsblog Chicago, the online daily news site that covers a wide range of public transit and mobility alternatives.

The report from Cameron Bolton chronicled the February 22 Seminar Series presentation, "The Outlook for Paratransit Across Metropolitan Chicago in 2024," the debut Seminar Series event hosted by the Urban Transportation Center.

During the zoom presentation, speakers from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) shared insight into paratransit options, mobility challenges, funding issues, and reduced fare programs for people with disabilities.
