CTA Jarvis Red Line station
Nov. 12, 2013: It¿s been a year since this Rogers Park station was closed for six weeks as part of a North Side Red Line project to beautify and repair seven stations. The CTA put in new windows, doors and lights on the stationhouse and made various improvements to the adjacent viaduct. But station ridership has yet to rebound after the closure, according to data through July. Jarvis ridership was down 6.4 percent to nearly 292,000 riders from January through July compared to the same period in 2012. Weekday ridership was down 16.8 percent in July to 1,594 riders. Systemwide, CTA rail ridership is down 1.5 percent this year. Perhaps part of the reason of the Jarvis decline is the persistence of slow zones on the North Side of the Red Line. Nearly 14 percent of that section of the Red Line is plagued by slow zones, including near Jarvis.
