Extra CTA service for Air and Water Show; no Blue Line work

More than 2 million people are expected this weekend for the Air and Water Show, so the CTA is putting all hands on deck. It should be almost as busy as July 3, except folks will be leaving downtown by late afternoon instead of late evening.

All Blue Line slow zone work is canceled. The CTA will increase capacity and frequency on all the key rail lines till about 7 pm. Check here for more details.

Boarding changes Friday at Fullerton, Belmont.
Meanwhile, the CTA is working hard to make good on the promise to finish Fullerton and Belmont station rehabs this year. To that end, all trains will board on the Red Line side for both northbound and southbound Brown and Red Line trains from 9 pm till 7 am Friday.

There also are some temporary bus reroutes for this weekend. Check this page for details.
