Green Line service has resumed, more than four hours after a derailment in the South Side Washington Park neighborhood halted trains during the evening rush.
The derailment was reported at 61st and Calumet about 2:45 p.m., placing it between the Cottage Grove and Garfield stations, according to the CTA. As a result, Green Line trains were operating only between Harlem/Lake and Ashland/63rd.
No injuries were reported, according to CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski.
About 78 people were evacuated from the train, according to the Fire Dept., some by themselves and other with assistance.
Trains have resumed normal service with some residual delays as of about 7 p.m., according to the transit agency.
Authorities continue to investigate the cause of the derailment.
