Indiana is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, located in Chicago, Illinois. The station serves the Green Line and the Grand Boulevard neighborhood. It is situated at 4003 S Indiana Avenue, two blocks east of State Street. It opened on August 15, 1892. Before the two lines closed, Indiana was a transfer station from the Englewood-Jackson Park Line to the Stock Yards and Kenwood branches of the CTA. Indiana is one of two stations on the 'L' that is built on an S-curve, with Sheridan on the Red Line being the other.

Notes and references[edit]


  1. ^ Indiana saw significantly higher ridership in 2013 due to the diversion of Red Line trains through this station while the Dan Ryan branch was closed for construction.
  2. ^ 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.
