Frustrating commute for CTA riders one day after crash

Some CTA riders experience dangerously overcrowded train platforms and more than doubled commute times following yesterday’s crash on the Blue Line today
Two trains collided at the Harlem Ave station yesterday morning.
The CTA made some service changes to reduce the waiting time between trains, including more short run* trains and shuttle buses to the Oak Park and Forest Park stations.
Even with the accommodations, commuters had a hard time making the adjustment.
NTSB investigators have taken over the Harlem Ave station, trying to determine what caused an out-of-service train to roll out of the yard, past multiple failsafe mechanisms, then crash head-on into another train a mile away.
