CHICAGO (STMW) — CTA Purple Line service is resuming after Monday’s frigid weather shut it down for about an hour and caused delays on multiple other train lines during the morning commute.
Purple Line service was suspended about 6 a.m. due to mechanical problems with a train near the Howard station, CTA spokesman Steve Mayberry said.
As of about 7 a.m., service was resuming with delays, according to the CTA.
A shuttle bus is operating between Howard and Central to accommodate Purple Line riders, and Mayberry also recommended the No. 201 Central/Ridge bus as an alternative for Purple Line riders.
