Chicago represents a major transportation hub, both internationally and nationally. As an important component in global distribution, it is the third largest intermodal port in the world after Singapore and Hong Kong. The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) coordinates the operation of the three service boards:
· The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA): This service board handles public transportation in the City of Chicago and a couple of adjacent suburbs outside of the Chicago city limits. These city lines also serve both Midway and O'Hare Airports. The CTA's rail lines consist of the Red, Blue, Green, Orange, Brown, Purple, Pink, and Yellow lines. Both the Red and Blue lines offer 24‑hour service which makes Chicago one of the few cities around the world to offer rail service 24 hours a day, every day of the year, within the city's limits.
· Metra: Metra is the nation's second-most used passenger regional rail network, operates an 11-line commuter rail service in Chicago and throughout the Chicago suburbs. The Metra Electric Line has the same tracks as the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District's South Shore Line and therefore provides commuter service between South Bend and Chicago.
