Jackson (also Jackson/Dearborn) is a subway station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, serving the Blue Line and located in the Chicago Loop. This station has just completed a renovation project that made it look closer in appearance to the Jackson/State station; a pedestrian tunnel connects these two stations, allowing for a free transfer to the Red Line. Farecard transfers to the Harold Washington Library–State/Van Buren station are also available at this station for the Brown Line, Orange Line, Purple Line and Pink Line.

Notes[edit]

  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.
