Notes and references[edit]


  1. ^ 47th saw significantly higher ridership in 2013 due to the diversion of Red Line trains through this station while the Dan Ryan branch was closed for construction.
  2. ^ 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.
