The RTA has a site that is now available to the public, that shows ridership, rolling stock, future corridors, ect., for metra, cta, and pace, and other things.

This is called the Regional Transportation Asset Management System (RTAMS)

To acess the info you must go to this web site, and sing up for it, and it is free. http://www.rtams.org/ui/homepage.asp

This thing is pretty cool. I like how it shows ridership at each station from 20+ years ago until today (2002-2003). I think its cool that it lists a 35th Street Station on RI as a Future project.
