D Line Project

METRO D Line (Chicago-Fremont bus rapid transit)

Faster transit is coming to the Route 5 corridor. 

Metro Transit is planning improvements to the Route 5 corridor with the D Line bus rapid transit project. The METRO D Line will substantially replace Route 5, running primarily on Chicago and Emerson/Fremont avenues. Bus rapid transit brings better amenities, faster service and a more comfortable ride.

• Faster, more frequent service
• Pre-boarding fare payment for faster stops
• Neighborhood-scale stations with amenities
• Enhanced security
• Larger & specialized vehicles

The D Line Fact Sheet has details on these features.
