The CTA will operate its #19 United Center Express buses to the United Center for the Clay Aiken/Kelly Clarkson concert Monday, March 22 and the Roundball Classic All-American Boys? Basketball Tournament Wednesday, March 24.

Both events begin at 7 p.m. and are expected to last until approximately 9:30 p.m. #19 buses will begin their trips south on Michigan from Chicago Avenue at 5 p.m. Buses will operate every 12 minutes until the last bus leaves at 6:30 p.m.

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

After each event, #19 buses will await customers on the north side of the United Center eastbound on Madison near Gate 3. On return trips, #19 buses operate through downtown east on Washington, making all stops from Jefferson to Michigan before turning north on Michigan and making all stops from Randolph to Chicago.
