According to the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), Blue Line trains will once again run in two sections over the weekend and recommend riders to allow for extra travel time. 

This work is part of the Your New Blue modernization program. It will improve signals, allowing trains to operate more efficiently. 

The CTA asks riders, "Wherever possible, please wear a mask while riding transit and be safe. Make a space and keep your distance from other!" 

A shuttle train will run between O'Hare and Rosemont and regular train service will run between Rosemont and Forest Park (via downtown) 

This work will begin on Fri., Aug. 7 at 10 p.m. and run through Mon., Aug. 10 to 4 a.m.

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

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

Note: No overnight train departures from O’Hare station (midnight to 4 a.m., 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. Shuttle bus service will be available during these hours from O’Hare to Rosemont for connection to continuing train service. 

This service change will allow for extra cleaning of the trains.
