    Is there still some hope for the southside extension of the Red Line when the 95th St. terminal is going to get tricked out like that?

    It does look nice, though.

    I hope not. Restoring 4 stations on the South Shore and implementing the Gray Line integration into CTA as to fares/monthly passes can provide better service in the same areas at a fraction of the cost and years faster.

    I would love to see an aerial view included in those 95th St. station renderings. I am curious to see what the overall traffic flow around the station will be when it’s all done.

  • Anne A

    Clueless safety preaching, indeed. I’m glad that they took a few seconds to include Jason Jenkins of Active Trans, but they conveniently forgot the hundreds (if not thousands) of drivers who run red lights in the city every single day. Thanks for nothing CBS!

  • Jeremy

    I wonder if the new 95th Street station will be set up to facilitate prepaid bus boarding.
