The CTA will operate its #19 United Center Express buses to the United Center for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus November 18 through Sunday, November 30.

#19 buses will begin their trips south on Michigan from Chicago Avenue two hours before each show and will operate every 12 minutes until a half hour before the show starts.

#19 buses make stops on Michigan at Illinois and at Randolph before turning west on Madison. Stops are then made on Madison at Wabash, State and Wells for customers transferring from 'L' and subway trains, and at Clinton for Metra riders from the Ogilvie Transportation Center and Union Station. From Clinton, #19 buses run express to the United Center.

After the shows, #19 buses will await customers on the north side of the United Center eastbound on Madison near Gate 3. On return trips, #19 buses will make all stops on Washington from Canal to Michigan and on Michigan from Randolph to Chicago. Trips will depart the United Center every 12 minutes until 45 minutes after the shows end.

On Saturday, November 22, #19 United Center Express buses will begin and end their trips from State and Chicago rather than Michigan and Chicago due to the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival.
