"Make no little plans...." - Daniel Burnham
"....they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work"
Hello, my name is Mike Payne - And I am the SOLE AUTHOR of the current "CTA Gray Line 'L' Route" Project (CMAP RTP Major Capital Project ID# 01-02-9003)
The Gray Line is currently designated by CMAP as the "South Lakefront Service" in their Project Lists.
This Plan would utilize the In-City Metra Electric District services (Kensington, South Chicago, Blue Island, and a new Hegewisch Shuttle) as a new Regional South Lakefront Corridor CTA 'L' service: the CTA Gray Line (Using A L L E X I S T I N G Metra Electric District Trains, Tracks, and Infrastructure)
The Gray Line, a Very Inexpensive and Cost Effective Proposal to provide CTA Rapid Transit ('L') Service to the SE Lakefront Corridor - The only Quadrant of The City of Chicago without CTA 'L' Service, and the Economic and Social benefits 'L' service provides.
