The CTA has created a Pullman Shuttle for the new Walmart

Ald. Anthony Beale sent an e-mail out this evening containing the information below, it seems CTA was quickly able to put together a bus service plan for the Walmart Supercenter to open on Wednesday. The plan seen here won't be the final plan and I'm sure as always service would always be tweaked.

111A Pullman Shuttle

Pullman neighborhood tomorrow in conjunction with the opening of a new Walmart store at 10900 S. Doty Avenue.

The CTA will offer the #111A Pullman bus shuttle every 20 minutes on weekdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and on weekends and holidays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to accommodate ridership during periods when demand is expected to be highest. This service will remain while a final service plan is reached with the developer and community.

"The CTA is pleased to be able to offer additional bus service in this growing community and serve patrons, workers and residents in the neighborhood," said CTA President Forrest Claypool. "This service has been put in place as we continue to develop a final service plan with the developer and the community."

"I am pleased that we have reached a solution for residents, the community, and workers at the newly opened Pullman Park Walmart development," said Alderman Anthony Beale. "I appreciate the willingness of Forrest Claypool and the Chicago Transit Authority to reach an agreement that will make the opening of this store the best it can be."

From 111th Street/King Drive, #111A buses (to Pullman Park) will operate south on King Drive to 113th Street, then will travel via 115th Street (due to construction reroute), Cottage Grove, 111th Street, Doty to 109th where they will then enter the Pullman Park via private roads and loop around the parking lot and CTA access road. Return trip #111A buses (to 111th/King Drive) will travel to Doty Avenue and travel the reverse route. The route will make connections with the 111th and 115th street bus routes.
