In the March edition of ‘Ask the Mayor,’ Larry Morrissey responded to a caller question about the possibility of adding express bus service from Rockford to a Metra stop in Elgin.

The Mayor told Michael Koolidge that it's a topic that has been discussed previously. Whether it's run by the RMTD or a private contractor, he says an important step is having the Tollway Authority identify the "express lane" on I-90 and the rules surrounding it. He also explained that over the past few years, RMTD has been building to become a more empowered facility in order to be prepared for bus or commuter rail management.

Remember, once a month, Rockford Mayor Larry Morrissey comes to the 1440 WROK studio to take your questions on his “Ask the Mayor” program hosted by Michael Koolidge. The Mayor will talk with Michael about issues impacting the city and its residents and will take comments and questions from our listeners.

The next edition of “Ask The Mayor” airs Friday, April 24, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
