The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) begun operating in 1947. CTA operates the nation’s second largest public transportation system and covers the City of Chicago and 40 surrounding suburbs. On an average weekday, nearly 1.5 million rides are taken on the CTA.

The panorama is taken inside a Blue Line train linking Chicago O’Hare Airport with Downtown.

  • I do love your panoramas, taken in the most extraordinary places. On another topic, I randomly came across an application of Google Maps that gives a rather thorough view of current traffic conditions around New York City. Simply type NYsee into a blank browser field, and you can watch busy intersections all over town, some in real time.
