Boarding changes and intermittent stairway closures are the two potential events affecting travel time for Blue Line riders between Aug. 10 and 15, warns the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA). 

As a precaution against the spread of COVID-19, the CTA asks riders to keep as much distance to fellow riders as possible to help promote a healthy travel environment for everyone.
