Jarvis is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, on the Red Line at 1523 W. Jarvis Avenue in Chicago, Illinois (directional coordinates 7400N, 1600W). The Rogers Park neighborhood, located in the far northeast corner of Chicago, has four 'L' stations (N to S): Howard, Jarvis, Morse, and Loyola.
The style of the station is typical for the intermediate red line stops between Howard and Belmont - a narrow platform in the middle of the tracks, with the Red Line stopping on the inner tracks, and the Purple Line running express on the outside tracks during weekday rush hours.
Closure for modernization project
Closure of Jarvis (along with Lawrence, and Thorndale on the Red Line and South Boulevard and Foster on the Purple Line) is proposed in of three of the CTA's six potential options for the renovation of the Purple Line and northern section of the Red Line. Under these plans, the station would be replaced by a new auxiliary entrance to Howard at Rogers Avenue.
