Two days since a blizzard tailed off, some commuters are still contending with Chicago Transit Authority delays. Dozens of Brown Line train riders found themselves on shuttle buses Friday morning after a motor vehicle collided with an outbound CTA train near the Rockwell station around 8:45 a.m.

Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel said Thursday that extending the CTA Red Line south is a priority. The announcement comes while the Chicago Transit Authority is working through a federal process to extend the train route.
