In case you were really worried, the CTA has reminded us a second time in less than a day that it is prepared for blizzard of 2011 that is currently upon us as I post this.
Here’s yesterday press release.
And here’s today’s.
They are remarkably the same, but they do actually communicate the good news that the CTA is providing rush hour service early today, and will be running trains all night to keep rails clear — even trains on the six rail lines that don’t operate overnight.
The CTA also warns that weather conditions may wreak a little havoc with the Bus and Train Tracker applications. Check the alerts section of the websitefor the latest service information.
Bottom line: Leave plenty of time to get where you’re going.
And gosh, I’m just so glad Cook County Courts decided to call me for jury duty Wednesday at 26th and Cal. Please, #60 Blue Island bus, don’t be late!
