Clinton is a subway station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, serving the Blue Line in the West Loop neighborhood of the larger Near West Side community area. The Congress Branch of the Blue line opened in June 1958, and connected to the existing Dearborn subway at LaSalle. It is the closest 'L' station to Union Station, the terminal for several Metra and Amtrak and the Chicago Greyhound Bus Terminal. It is also the deepest station on the CTA system.[1]
