Ashland/63rd is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, located in the West Englewood neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois and serving the Green Line's Ashland branch. It is situated at 6315 S. Ashland Avenue. It opened on May 6, 1969. This station is the southern terminal of the Ashland branch of the Green Line. The station contains a Park 'n' ride lot with 235 spaces as well as a Kiss 'n' Ride lane. Though the station itself was not rebuilt in the Green Line renovation of 1994-96, an elevator was added to the station during that time to make it ADA accessible. This is one of two stations on the Green Line to be named Ashland. The other station is on the Lake Street branch and is shared between the Green and Pink Lines. The Red Line served this station from May 19, 2013 to October 20, 2013, April 3, 2017 to November 22, 2017, and July 30, 2018 to present day.
