November 11, 1999

Extra CTA buses will serve Soldier Field for the last four Bears home games of the 1999 football season, beginning with the Minnesota Vikings game at noon Sunday, November 14. The other three games are also scheduled to start on Sundays at noon.

Soldier Field can also be reached from stations at Roosevelt on the Red, Green and Orange Lines between State and Wabash. From there, riders can transfer to extra buses on the #12 Roosevelt route, or walk east on Roosevelt through the Museum Campus to Soldier Field.

Beginning two hours before the noon kickoff Sunday, shuttle buses on the #146 Marine/Michigan route will supplement regular service to Soldier Field southbound on State from Kinzie. The buses will go south on State to Roosevelt, and then east to Columbus and McFetridge at the north end of Soldier Field.

Also heading for Soldier Field will be buses on CTA's #128 Soldier Field Express route, which provide direct service from the two Metra stations west of the Loop. Starting about 90 minutes before game time, buses on the #128 route stop for riders from the Ogilvie Transportation Center (formerly North Western Station) westbound on Madison between Canal and Clinton.

Other #128 buses will start their trips from Union Station in the reverse-flow bus lane southbound on Canal between Adams and Jackson. Buses from both stations will then run express via Jackson, Clark and Roosevelt to Soldier Field.

After the game, extra buses on the #128 route will await riders on McFetridge Drive for express trips back to Union Station and Ogilvie Center. Shuttle buses on the #146 route will return to State Street downtown, where riders can transfer to other buses or to 'L' service to complete their trips. Other #146 buses will proceed north over the regular Sunday route via State, North Michigan, inner Lake Shore Drive, Stockton, Sheridan and Marine to the Berwyn Red Line 'L' station.
