What about the Red and Green Line service to White Sox games? Is there special game day service on the Metra Rock Island line for White Sox games?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
CTA usually runs every 5, 10 to 15 mins, just like metrari said, but depending on the day.
Also with the cubs weekday afternoon games the purple line southbound express trains from Linden to Downtown will make stop at the Sheridan station, and fans on that train either walk a few blocks to the field, or take the red line to Addison which is the next stop.,those trains the moterman will have a service to wrigle field sing which he put on the front chains of the lead car with the cubs logo on it, I ridden it several times coming from Evanston, going to Union Station,on my way home.
CTA Sports info from its site.
