Rail Lines

 

BLUE LINE

 

Apr 23 – 24
Fri to Sat, nightly
10pm to 6am next day

Trains Run in Two Sections

How does this affect my trip?
Trains will run in two sections:

  • A shuttle train between O'Hare and Rosemont
  • Regular train service between Rosemont and Forest Park (via downtown)

To continue trips through Rosemont to/from O'Hare, transfer across the platform:

  • For service from Rosemont to O'Hare, board a shuttle train on the Forest Park-bound side of the platform
  • For service from Rosemont toward downtown and Forest Park, board a departing train on the O'Hare-bound side

Allow extra travel time. 

Note: No additional overnight train departures from O’Hare station (midnight–4am, nightly) — Though train service continues to run to O’Hare station at all times, there’s no overnight Blue Line service from O’Hare to Rosemont stations for added train cleaning; shuttle bus service available during these hours from O’Hare to Rosemont for connection to continuing train service. See separate customer alert for details.


Why is service being changed?
We are making signal improvements to allow trains to operate more efficiently along the Blue Line as part of the Your New Blue modernization program.
