Laramie is a former station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system on the Douglas Branch while it was a branch of the Blue Line. It was closed on February 9, 1992 because of service cuts that resulted from budget problems. It was temporarily put back into service on February 25, 2002 for the Douglas Rehabilitation Project while the terminal at 54th/Cermak was being rebuilt. It was again closed after the new station at 54th/Cermak opened on August 16, 2003. However, the station was never torn down because it was considered historic.
