NEIL Public Transit Task Force

On August 15, 2013, Governor Pat Quinn issued Executive Order 13-06 creating the Northeastern Illinois Public Transit Task Force to address serious concerns regarding the current structure of the northeastern Illinois public transit system. Governor Quinn appointed 15 members to serve on the Task Force.

The Task Force was asked to study, examine and evaluate the Northeastern Illinois transit Agencies to determine how the operations of these agencies can be recognized, streamlined or restructured to, among other things, ensure greater efficiency, accountability, coordination and transparency. On March 31, 2014, the task force ended its term with the submittal of a final report and recommendations developed to create a world-class transit system for the northeastern Illinois region.
