CHICAGO — CTA service has returned to normal after a body was found on the tracks south of Fullerton Tuesday morning.
For over two hours, the CTA Brown, Red and Purple Lines were halted in both directions as police investigated. People flooded CTA stalls, trying to find alternate ways to get to work. Lyft and Uber prices surged, and one WGN viewer said there was a 90-minute wait for a cab.
