CTA Adds Upgraded Security Cameras Across System
The Emanuel administration, Chicago Police Department and Chicago Transit Authority announced upgrades to security cameras at CTA stations, as part of the authority’s “Safe and Secure” program. Cameras will also be installed at four Blue Line stations on the city’s West Side: Clinton, LaSalle, Grand and Chicago.
“This program delivers on Chicago’s commitment to a world-class public transportation system that provides a comfortable, safe and secure experience for transit riders,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “Chicago is the first city in the nation to create a ride-hailing fee dedicated to transit, making it possible to continue to invest in the latest technology and improve the quality of life in our city.”
Through Safe & Secure, CTA will add 1,000 new cameras and upgrade more than 3,800 older-model cameras throughout the system. Additionally, new lighting, repairs and other improvements will enhance safety at all 146 CTA rail stations.
