CTA will operate its #19 United Center Express buses to the United Center for basketball games Saturday, December 8, between the University of Illinois and the University of Arkansas. The men's game will start at 11 a.m., and the women's game at 1 p.m.
Beginning two hours before each game, and continuing until 30 minutes before tip-off time, fully accessible #19 United Center Express buses will operate every 12 minutes, starting southbound on Michigan at Chicago Avenue. After each game, #19 buses will make return trips east through the Loop on Washington, and north on Michigan to Chicago.
Outbound #19 buses stop on Michigan at Chicago, Illinois and Randolph before turning west on Madison. Stops are then made at Wabash, State and Wells for riders transferring from 'L'-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 each game, #19 buses will await riders on the north side of the United Center eastbound on Madison near Gate 3. Return trips are via Madison, Green and Washington to Michigan, where buses make all stops north to Chicago.
