Addison (CTA Red Line)


Addison (CTA Red Line)

Addison is a Chicago, Illinois station of the Chicago Transit Authority elevated train line popularly called the Chicago 'L'. It is located in the Wrigleyville enclave of the Lakeview neighborhood at 940 West Addison Street with city block coordinates at 3600 North at 940 West. Addison directly serves the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field, the city's north side Major League Baseball team and its stadium. The station is served by the Red Line.

Prior to 2007, southbound afternoon Purple Line Express trains stopped at the station before weekday evening Cubs games, to speed travel times for customers from Evanston, Skokie and Wilmette. In an effort to prevent delays due to Brown Line construction just south of the station, Purple Line Express trains now stop at the nearby Sheridan station instead.

Following Cubs games, this station can become overcrowded and jammed with people trying to get on the trains.
