[VIDEO] The new CTA Red Line South is coming on October 20. The 5 month long project that started in May will be at it's conclusion and the shuttle buses that took passengers to Garfield to catch a Green Line or rerouted Red Line train will be discontinued. Service will be status quo as it was before May 19th. It will be a long time in coming as well.
I noted this in passing as well as other CTA news mainly the Ventra card conversion on this blog last week. I hope people have settled that although granted new initiatives sometimes do have initial bugs. Though hopefully we will see improved service on the Dan Ryan branch when it's finally in service next week.
From CTA's FB page here's an album that shows more testing before the line is back in service.
