Jarvis is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, on the Red Line, located at 1523 W. Jarvis Avenue in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.

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[edit]

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.[2] Under these plans, the station would be replaced by a new auxiliary entrance to Howard at Rogers Avenue.[3]

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.
