CTA No. 192 Stops at 53rd Street's Harper Court

Thursday, September 12, 2013

As Hyde Park's 53rd Street attracts a plethora of new businesses while reshuffling locations of some of the existing retailers, visiting shoppers coming from downtown to 53rd Street will have another transit option.

The 192 University of Chicago Hospitals Express bus will add a southbound stop at 53rd Street and Lake Park Avenue. 

The bus route currently travels express from Roosevelt Road and State Street to 59th Street and Kimbark Avenue.

The new stop will only be during the morning hours. The bus will stop across the street from the Harper Court office tower, next to the Akira building.

The new route will run express between 53rd Street and 59th Street and Kimbark Avenue.

Important to note, the 192 route will not stop at 53rd Street as it travels back north to downtown. Riders can take either the No. 28 or No. 6 buses.

In the evening, the 192 will turn onto Cottage Grove Avenue from 59th Street and will stop at 57th Street and 55th Street before continuing on its previous route.
