Some Red Line riders sad to see shuttles end with reopening

Amid the CTA’s Red Line reopening Sunday on the South Side, some commuters are saddened to see the end of free bus shuttles to and from four shuttered stations — part of the most complex alternative service plans in the transit system’s history. “It’s free, and it’s waiting for you and it’s fast,” Ashley Gilbert, 19, of Chatham said Friday afternoon at the Green Line Garfield station where bus drivers in eight shuttles awaited passengers.
