Yellow Line Service Temporarily Suspended

Yellow Line
Sunday, May 17, 2015 - 10:00 PM
to Friday, October 30, 2015 - 4:45 AM
Impact Level:
Service Suspended

Full Description:

Service on the Yellow Line has been temporarily suspended due to a track condition.

Shuttle buses are available to provide connecting service through the affected area. CTA #97 Skokie bus service may be a good alternative option to Yellow Line train service.

Allow extra travel time.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. We are working to restore service as soon as possible. More Information About Service Resuming Fri, Oct 30

Shuttle bus service

Shuttle bus service operates on approximately the same frequency as scheduled Yellow Line service during hours which Yellow Line trains would otherwise operate—approximately every 10 minutes during weekday rush periods and every 15 minutes at most other times, in both directions.

As an added convenience, like Yellow Line service after Cubs night games, shuttle bus service hours will be extended following Cubs night games, with buses operating from Howard until Midnight.

Where to board bus shuttles
Howard Toward Skokie: In bus terminal (use Paulina exit if transferring from Red or Purple Line trains in station).
Oakton-Skokie Toward Dempster-Skokie: At regular northbound 54A stop on Skokie Blvd., just north of Oakton St.
Toward Howard: At regular southbound 54A stop on the west side of Skokie Blvd, south of Searle Pkwy or on the west side of Skokie Blvd, north of Oakton St.
Dempster-Skokie Toward Howard: In bus terminal near station.
