Riders who want to go express will be getting more service on three CTA bus routes this coming Monday. Frequency of express service will be increased on the #X49 Western Express, #X55 Garfield Express and #X80 Irving Park Express routes. This is on an experimental basis -- to see if this works better for customers, so let the CTA know if you like it, or don't.
Western is the third busiest route in the system with over 36,000 customers per weekday in the corridor. Irving Park routes - both local and express - carry 17,500 people per weekday. Garfield routes carry 16,000 individuals per weekday.
