Learn how to use an online trip planner to make sure you have all the information you need to travel independently on public transportation.
In the first of our series of four instructional videos, advocates Tim Finnegan and Bridget Brown show you how to use RTAchicago.com to plan your trip online. They will walk you through everything from learning what bus route to take, to how much your fare will be, to how long your journey take.
We hope this video will be helpful to people with disabilities, people who experience anxiety around taking public transportation, or people who have just not been trained on how to take the bus or train.

Look out for the rest of the videos in this series as we release one each month this summer! This video on how to plan your trip was produced by JJ’s List for Pace Suburban Bus.
