Transportation Shuttle Pilot

In alignment with its mission to attract and retain a talented workforce and in response to the need to broaden transportation options for the local business community, the Greater Oak Brook Economic Development Partnership has forged a working coalition to bring “last mile” shuttle opportunities from nearby local train stations. Using its unique position to bring the RTA, the Village of Oak Brook and local property owners together, the Greater Oak Brook EDP supported the survey of key data points including commercial neighborhood density, employee origination points and proximity to train stations. The results have now informed a pilot under development to bring morning and evening rush hour shuttles to the Commerce Drive area in Oak Brook with a planned launch in Winter/Spring 2018. After the successful implementation of the pilot program, the EDP will work to expand last mile transportation options to more properties in Greater Oak Brook.
