The White Sox have one. So do the Cubs. Will Bulls fans soon have their own CTA stop to get to and from games?

Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday talked about the possibility of creating a new CTA stop that would serve the United Center and the new Malcolm X College he plans to build nearby.

The CTA says there aren’t plans to build a station serving the United Center, but a station “could be considered in the future,” spokesman Brian Steele said.

That would entail an “in-fill station” — a new station to fill a gap between stations. The new Morgan stop on the Green Line is an in-fill station between Clinton and Ashland.

A Pink Line station near the United Center would fit that criteria between Ashland and Polk, Steele said. Tina Sfondeles
