Service Change for #171 Buses

Effective Sunday, September 6th, #171 buses will have revised service hours and discontinued Sunday service.  Service on this route will operate as follows:


  • Southbound service will operate every 15 minutes until 11 a.m. leaving Shore Drive/54th and 11:20 a.m. leaving 60th/University.
  • Midday and evening service will operate every 30 minutes.


  • #171 buses will no longer operate on Sundays.

Service is being changed at the request of the University of Chicago, who subsidizes this route, to better reflect current ridership demand.
