Some Blue Line trains are temporarily out of service after a train derailed Thursday night.
The front set of the train’s wheels went off the tracks slightly when it hit an automobile tire on the tracks as the train was leaving the Cicero station about 7:45 p.m., CTA spokesman Brian Steele said.
The rest of the wheels remained on the tracks, Steele said.
It’s unclear how many passengers were on board, but there were no reports of injuries, a Fire Department spokesman said.
Shuttle buses will take passengers between the Pulaski and Oak Park stops, Steele said.
It was unclear how long it will take for crews to work on the problem, he said.
Inbound service was not affected, Steele said.
