CHICAGO – The city restored CTA service to the Loop and lowered all bridges to provide access to downtown after days of peaceful protest in Chicago Sunday.
The decision to resume normal service on the Chicago Transit Authority lines including buses and el trains comes after multiple peaceful protests in Chicago Saturday and throughout the week.
Tens of thousands marched from Union Park to Seward Park to protest police brutality on Saturday, while Chicago police said no arrests were made related to the protests.
All Metra trains will also resume operating on alternate weekday schedules starting Monday, the agency said Sunday. Alternate weekday service will resume, including on the SouthWest Service, Heritage Corridor and North Central Service lines.
Metra reduced service to Sunday schedules only as protests led to a drop in readership and protests spread across the region.
