95th/Dan Ryan (or simply 95th) is a rapid transit station on the Chicago 'L' system in the median of the Dan Ryan Expressway and serving Chicago's Roseland neighborhood. Currently, it serves as the southern terminus of the Chicago Transit Authority's Red Line. This station was the system's eighth busiest in 2009.[1] Trains take approximately 30 minutes to travel to the Loop, and 60 minutes to reach Howard.[2]

It is the only CTA rail terminal located in an expressway (except for UIC-Halsted, which is only a short-turn for Blue Line trains on weekends), and also one of the only terminals with no park-and-ride lot. Like Howard, this station has a bus terminal and connects to Pace and CTA buses, but unlike Howard, it also connects to Greyhound buses.

History

Ironically, though the station is called 95th/Dan Ryan, no CTA announcement says it that way. Before the CTA changed the name of 95th/Dan Ryan to simply 95th, the destination signs, the station signs, and other signs labeled it as 95/Dan Ryan. This is possibly because of the old CTA maps labeling it as "95".

Ridership

Approximately 50,000 people go through the terminal every day.[citation needed] Many commuters from the far south side or south suburbs connect to 95th Street via the CTA and/or Pace bus systems. 95th/Dan Ryan is the southernmost stop in the CTA system. In 2006, Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. announced plans to extend Red Line service further south.[when?] Proposed new stations would include 103rd street, 111th Street, 115th Street and will end at 130th Street.[3]

The station also serves as the Greyhound bus "Chicago 95th & Dan Ryan, Illinois" station.[4]

95th Street Terminal Reconstruction project

After the Red Line South Reconstruction project is completed in October 2013, The CTA is planning to do a reconstruction project that will cost $240 million, and will expand, improve and rebuild the entire 95th Street terminal; the terminal station will remain open during the project, and the project began on September 22, 2014 and will continue through 2017.[5]

Notes

  1. ^ Due to possible double-counting of physically-connected stations, the CTA's official 2014 tally of stations was 145, but for ridership purposes reported having only 143 stations.
