CTA Kimball Brown Line station
June 25, 2013: While some end-of-line stations are major transportation hubs that serve as busy transfer points (think: Midway Orange Line and Howard Red Line stations), the Kimball Brown Line stop is much less imposing. Only three bus lines drop off at the Albany Park stop, compared with a half-dozen CTA buses at the Howard stop. The best feature of the Kimball station is the complete weather-protection along the platforms¿though typically there already is a waiting train. The worst part is that riders are not sure exactly when the train will depart. Train trackers for end-of-line stations rely on the train's schedule, not its GPS, to inform riders when the train is leaving the station because the train is already at the station.
