Stanley Cup Conference Quarterfinal Round hockey games at the United Center Sunday, April 21, and Tuesday, April 23, between the Chicago Blackhawks and the St. Louis Blues will be served by extra buses on the #19 United Center Express route. The Sunday game is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Tuesday's contest will be at 7 p.m.

For both games, fully accessible #19 United Center Express buses will begin trips to the United Center two hours before face-off time, making their first stop southbound on Michigan at Chicago Avenue. Operating every 12 minutes until a half hour before the start of each game, #19 buses will make stops on Michigan at Illinois and Randolph. They will then turn west on Madison, stopping at Wabash, State, Wells and Clinton before running express to the United Center.

For the first Cubs night game at Wrigley Field Tuesday, April 23, at 7:05 p.m. against the San Francisco Giants, and for all remaining night games of the season, the CTA will operate its #154 Wrigley Field Express buses to Wrigley Field from parking lots near Addison and Western.

Buses on the #154 route start their trips at parking lots near DeVry Institute south and west of Addison and Western, beginning about 2? hours before each night game. A $5 fee includes both parking and round-trip fares for all riders in each car.

The lots are just over a mile east of the Addison exit from the Kennedy Expressway. #154 buses take riders to a stop for Wrigley Field on Clark just north of Addison. After the game, fans returning to the parking lots can board #154 buses at the same location.

'L' service to Wrigley Field is provided at all times by CTA's Red Line trains, which stop at the Addison station just east of the ball park. For the start of night games, fans can also reach the Addison station on Purple Line Express trains, which operate non-stop south from Howard and make all stops north from stations on the inner Loop 'L'. Cubs games are also served by #22 Clark and #152 Addison buses.
