Southbound Red Line trains running with major delays following mechanical problem at Loyola

Southbound Red Line trains were not stopping between the Howard and Wilson stops for about 40 minutes, the CTA said.

Two people were charged in an accidental shooting April 9, 2020, on a Red Line train in Lake View.
The CTA is citing a mechanical problem as a reason for the partial service suspension.

CTA Red Line trains bound towards 95th Street have resumed normal service after a mechanical problem caused them to bypass several North Side stations for over half an hour, according to the transit agency.

Southbound trains began bypassing all stations between the Howard and Wilson stops just before 1 p.m., the CTA said. Normal service was resumed about 1:30 p.m., and trains are now running with major delays and congestion following the partial suspension.
