Service cuts to the CTA are coming Feb. 7 -- 18 percent to bus service and 9 percent to rail service. Nine express routes will be cut, and 41 bus routes will have shorter hours. Service will be affected on all 7 rail routes and 119 bus routes, with less frequent runs. CTA officials today said to expect fuller buses and trains and longer waits.
Rail customers can expect an additional one or two minutes for a train during rush hour, generally two to five minutes longer during off-peak periods. Bus riders can expect an additional two to five minutes between buses during weekday rush periods, and two to eight minutes during off-peak hours. During very late evening hours, there may be an additional 10-15 minutes between buses.
Do you have any questions on how this will affect you? I'll try to answer them.
