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]

The closure of the Jarvis CTA station (along with Lawrence, and Thorndale on the Red Line and South Boulevard and Foster on the Purple Line) was proposed in three of the CTA's six potential options for the renovation of the Purple Line and northern section of the Red Line in 2011.[2] Under these plans that were never implemented, the station would have been replaced by a new auxiliary entrance to Howard at Rogers Avenue.[3]
