Planning the Last Mile: Shared Vehicles Along the Illinois Rail Corridor

GO CarSharing will conduct a feasibility study for placing shared vehicles at or near Amtrak stations and municipal building in Joliet, Normal, Springfield, and Chicago, Illinois. The study will assess potential demand for shared vehicles in those locations, and, based on the analysis of potential demand at the these locations, IGO will formulate an implementation plan for creating a successful last mile solution for rail passengers using each of the four stations. The project is designed to develop a last mile solution that will improve access to key businesses, universities and centers of commerce in the State. It will also help facilitate new development patterns and investments that will reduce the cost of living while providing greater mobility within Illinois.
