CTA Green Line and Metra UP-W trains were disrupted for nearly seven hours Wednesday evening due to “police activity” at Harlem.

The CTA first announced that Green Line trains were standing due to “an unauthorized person on the tracks” at Harlem about 4:15 p.m., and suspended service between Harlem and Laramie about 5:35 p.m. Shuttle buses have been dispatched to make up for the disruption, the CTA said.

Metra later stopped all UP-W trains to allow for a police response.

Green Line trains resumed service around 10:55 p.m. with residual delays.
