Shuttle Buses Serve Three O'Hare Branch Blue Line Stations Saturday Shuttle buses will replace trains serving O'Hare branch Blue Line stations at Damen, Western and California from 7 a.m. Saturday until 10 a.m. Sunday to allow construction work to proceed at the Western/O'Hare station. Buses will meet each train and operate along a route that serves all three stations. Customers should allow 15 to 30 minutes extra travel time for their trips. Also, from midnight Friday until 7 a.m. Saturday, and from 10 a.m. until midnight Sunday, construction will require trains to operate alternately in both directions using the same track while serving the Damen and Western stations. During this period trains will run every 15 minutes in each direction.
