Chicago Transit Authority
LCM has worked with the CTA since 2000 to make its rail transit system more accessible to people with disabilities.
Surveys & Reports
Technical Design Manual
Universal Design Consulting
LCM addressed stations on the Blue, Brown, Green, Pink, Red-Blue, and Red Lines undergoing major alterations. We reviewed construction plans for accessibility compliance, conducted field surveys, and provided reports with compliance deficiencies and remediation recommendations. We also addressed noncompliant products/materials, consulted on the CTA graphics package, and developed technical reference materials for CTA design staff.
Currently LCM provides accessibility and universal design consulting, including enhanced wayfinding and elevator assessments, for the ongoing All Stations Accessibility Program, a comprehensive 20 year plan initiated in 2016 to make the entire rail system accessible to people with disabilities.
