A large urban city like Chicago is a hub of traffic activity, including mass transit vehicles. Metra and CTA trains traverse Chicago and its surrounding communities. CTA and PACE buses navigate the roadways of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Unfortunately, given the wide variety of modes of transportation – pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, buses, and trains – accidents with mass transportation happen all too often. Due to the sheer size of mass transit vehicles and the number of people that use the mass transit vehicles, the accidents often have devastating results.
