The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) warns Blue Line riders that travel this weekend may cause some delays as they work on signal improvements allowing trains to operate more efficiently, as part of the Your New Blue modernization program.

"Wherever possible, please wear a mask while riding transit and be safe. Make space and keep your distance from others," CTA officials request.

For riders going to and from O'Hare from Aug. 21, Fri., at 10 p.m.to 4 a.m., Aug. 24, Mon., a train shuttle will operated between O'Hare and Rosemont. 

Riders using the shuttle will have to transfer trains at Rosemont. 

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

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