CTA will operate its #19 United Center Express buses to the United Center from North Michigan Avenue and Madison Street downtown for University of Illinois Fighting Illini men's and women's basketball games Saturday, December 16, and for the Carreras-Domingo-Pavarotti concert Sunday, December 17.

The Fighting Illini men's team will play the Arizona Wildcats at 11 a.m. Saturday, and the women's team will play the DePaul Blue Demons at 1:30 p.m. The three tenors? concert on Sunday is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

Fully accessible #19 United Center Express buses will operate every 12 minutes starting southbound on Michigan at Chicago two hours before the start of each event and continuing until 30 minutes before it begins. Due to the weather conditions, CTA customers should allow plenty of travel time.

After stopping on Michigan at Chicago, Illinois and Randolph, the buses turn west on Madison, where stops are made at State for riders transferring from both subways, at Wells for the ?L," and at Clinton for Metra riders from the Ogilvie Transportation Center (North Western Station) and Union Station. The buses then run express to the United Center.

#19 United Center Express buses await riders leaving the United Center eastbound on Madison near Gate 3, for return trips downtown via Madison, Halsted, Washington, and Michigan to Chicago. Stops are made for the Ogilvie Center and Union Station at Canal, for the Blue Line subway at Dearborn, and for the Red Line and the 'L' at State. After reaching Michigan Avenue, the buses will make all stops north to Chicago.
