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.
