Updated 'L' Route Timetables Eff. Mar. 26

Beginning Sunday, March 26, updated schedules will go into effect for all rail lines.

We adjust schedules several times each year to help make service operate more efficiently and account for seasonal or changing ridership patterns. These changes are also part of a continuing schedule optimization initiative to provide more consistent, reliable service and include improvements to better align with current workforce availability.

These advance schedules are provided as a courtesy, and may be of particular interest to our customers who travel during off-peak hours.

No changes to bus routes' schedules are happening at this time.

*Note: To provide added capacity using all available resources and to better meet demand among the busiest parts of the Blue Line, more scheduled service will run between O’Hare and UIC-Halsted, only. Riders on the Forest Park branch should check schedules, allow extra travel time, and be sure to check train destinations when boarding.
