Improvements to Addison Red Line Station Require Weekend Closure
Track improvements on the Red Line at Addison will require the temporary closure of the station this weekend, from 10 p.m. Friday, March 29 until 4 a.m. Monday, April 1, 2019.

During this temporary weekend closure, free bus shuttle service will operate between the Addison and Belmont Red Line stations. CTA encourages customers to allow for extra time.

The improvements to the Addison Red Line will provide a smoother ride and eliminate slow zones in preparation for the Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) Phase One Project, which will begin later this year and is CTA’s largest project in history.

Buy your unlimited ride passes and fares in advance
Avoid long lines to buy fares! Customers can add  unlimited ride passes (1-day, 3-day, 7-day and 30-day) or add money to pay per-ride to their Ventra cards ahead of time via the free Ventra app, at rail station Ventra vending machines, online or at more than 1,000 local retailers (for locations visit ventrachicago.com or the Ventra app).

Customers can also purchase 1-day unlimited ride tickets ($10) or single-ride tickets ($3) from all Ventra vending machines. Single-ride tickets include up to two transfers in two hours. Customers can also pay their fares with their personal contactless debit or credit cards.
