Dispatch Series No. 11, From Garfield ‘L’ to Blue Line Rapid Transit
Shore Line presents over 125 years of history and the development of the first multimodal transportation corridor—rail freight, rapid transit and a limited-access highway connecting downtown Chicago with suburbia. Combined, Dispatch 1, Cooperation Moves the Public and Dispatch 11, From Garfield ‘L’ to Blue Line Rapid Transit recall the railroads’ history and how decades of urban planning resulted in efficient land use. It was a prototype for other transportation corridors in Chicago and other cities in the U.S. and Canada.
