Today we share this ig post from the Chicago Transit Authority a scene from 63rd/Ashalnd. Riders boarding the 110 Marquette bus to 71st/Pulaski back in 1975. I got to see if that bus got cut in later years. It's even noted that the Ashland/63rd Green Line station is the terminal for some Red Line trains during rush hour period as work is underway to revamp the 95th/Dan Ryan Red Line terminal.
Bus at Ashland/63rd: CTA riders change at the Ashland/63rd station to a GMC-made CTA bus in service on the 110 Marquette route to 71st/Pulaski in 1975. Today, this station is served by Green Line trains as well as some Red Line rush period trains that operate between Howard and Ashland/63rd, a temporary routing today to allow for reconstruction work to proceed at 95th. During the era where this photo was taken, all trains serving this station went to/from Howard, via subway, in service on what was then called the North-South Route (predating the modern Red and Green Line routings and route naming by color). #cta #cta70 #ctahistory #chicagohistory #transit #buses #rapidtransit #ctagreenline #ctaredline #1970s #hats #englewood #westenglewood #westlawn
