CTA service changes: Tweet us your commute

December 14, 2012|By Jessica Galliart, @jessicagalliart | RedEye

As service and schedule changes take effect on train and bus lines Sunday as part of the CTA's "decrowding" initiative, RedEye wants to see what your rush hour commutes look like Monday morning and evening.

More trains are scheduled to run during rush hour on six different rail lines--including Blue, Red and Brown--and 48 bus routes, like the No. 146 Inner Drive/Michigan Express, will see more buses, as well. However, more than a dozen bus routes will be partially or completely eliminated, including the No. 11 Lincoln bus.

RedEye needs your help! Want to share your Monday commuting experience with us from Twitter or Instagram? Include the following in your Instagram or tweet from your commute on Monday:

-Hashtag: #CTAspotting
-Tweet to or mention @redeyechicago
-A photo in your tweet, if you can!
-What train line or bus route are you on? 
-What train or bus stop?
-In which direction are you headed? 
-What time is it? 
-Tell us what the crowd on the platform or bus shelter and train car or bus was like when you got on. 
Here's an example of how you could tweet us: 
Blue Line Division stop, headed to Loop, 7:45 a.m. Platform a bit less crowded than usual, trains were still elbow-to-elbow. #CTAnew
