Expanded night game service will be provided for Game 6 of the playoffs between the Cubs and the Florida Marlins tonight. #154 Wrigley Field Express buses will begin operating approximately every 7 - 8 minutes from the DeVry school parking lot on Rockwell (2600 West) south of Addison (3600 North), and the ballpark at 4:30 p.m. and will run continuously until one hour after the game ends. A $5 per vehicle fee covers parking and a round trip ride to and from the ballpark.

Extra buses will operate on the #152 Addison route. #152 service normally ends at 9:10 p.m. eastbound and 10 p.m. westbound. Service will resume at the end of the game leaving from Wrigley Field in both directions until one hour after the game ends.

Yellow Line trains will operate until 1 a.m. Southbound Purple Line trains will stop at Addison before the game only. Red Line trains will operate every 3 ? 5 minutes before the game. There will be more frequent Red Line service operating approximately every 5 minutes after the game, until one hour after the game ends or as crowds warrant.

All customers heading for Wrigley Field are encouraged to purchase fare media in advance to speed their trips to and from Wrigleyville.

If Game 7 is necessary, it will be played at 7:20 p.m. Wednesday, October 15 and the same service will be in effect.
