The improvements on the more than 40-year-old line will make service faster and more reliable, officials said.
CTA alternatives to get to Sox games include the Green Line, and Metra is also offering a variety of options for travelers. Metra's Electric Line serves the South Side with stops at tourist destinations including the University of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry. For Sox enthusiasts, the Rock Island Line also stops at 35th Street serving U.S. Cellular Field as well as the nearby Illinois Institute of Technology campus.
Pace offers a bus service to the ballpark from several suburban locations.
The CTA and Metra are featuring some joint fare deals. For more information, visit metrarail.com/metra/en/home.html.
