Updated 'L' Route Timetables Eff. Nov 26, 2017

Beginning November 26, 2017, updated schedules will go into effect for most CTA 'L' train routes. We routinely adjust schedules several times each year to help make service operate more efficiently and to account for seasonal ridership patterns.

These advance schedules are provided as a courtesy, and may be of particular interest to our customers who travel during off-peak hours.

No changes to bus schedules are happening at this time.

Routes that have no changes are not listed on this page, as their current schedules (already published) will remain the same.
