CTA Riders at 95th Street Terminal Reminded of New Temporary Bus Boarding Locations Beginning Friday Night

November 15, 2017

Construction requires temporary closure of West bus terminal; station entrances to remain open

CTA customers who board buses at the 95th/Dan Ryan station are reminded that beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, November 17, the West bus terminal will be temporarily closed for approximately four weeks requiring temporary changes in bus boarding locations for nearly all CTA and Pace bus routes.

The temporary closure of the West bus terminal is necessary to allow CTA to continue construction of the new, $280 million 95th Street Terminal. The new terminal will be completed in 2018, and provide the 20,000 customers who use 95th station daily with a much larger, more comfortable and easier to navigate transit facility.

There are no major changes to bus or rail service during the construction period, and all entrances to the rail station will continue to be open during this period.

West Bus Terminal Closure (Phase II)
  • The western bus boarding area, closest to Lafayette Avenue, will close beginning 10 p.m. Friday, November 17 for approx. four weeks.
