Clark/Lake is a 'super station' consisting of two stations that have been merged into one. The original elevated station opened in 1895 as part of the Lake Street Elevated Railroad. The subway station opened as Lake Transfer in the Dearborn Street Subway in 1951.
Trains to the airport from here.
Real shady with the Green Line times. Wonder why that is..?
Watch out for pigeons! they are real gangster, and they can take you out!
On Saturdays trains don't start running till about 5:00. With the exception of the blue line.
Cta rainbow trains they come in all ur favorite colors
If you exit through the Thompson Center, there's a touch-free pump of hand sanitizer near the escalators. Use it!
CTA Elevator = Smell of urine! YUCK!
Watch out for the pickpockets they like hanging in here because all the travelers come here. They like to do their crime in the back traveling in 2, 3, or 4. Police are never there or Cta supervisor
Elevators are very slow and full of urine. If they were faster, it would give people less time to pee and both problems would be.solved.
Don't step over the homeless.
Trains around 9pm are almost non-existent on weekdays
Stand up for ladies :)
Get a car ;)
The elevator seconds as a bathroom judging by the smell.
Blue line is all the way downstairs. Red line is 2 blocks east on State (follow the traffic on Lake Street). Every other line in town is up on the elevated tracks.
This is Lake Transfer. Change here for Ravenswood, Lake/Dan Ryan and Evanston Express trains. Circa 1990.
CTA Passengers: MOVE TOWARD THE CENTER OF ALL TRAINS AND BUSES! Standing in the doorways so more passengers cannot get on is crazy rude. Just be courteous. :)
StreetWise vendors are within blocks of this station! Help us end homelessness :)
We're glad you are here! :)
For a breeze while you wait, stand near the wells entrance
Dont touch anything.
You are being watched.
Ready to relax...it's been an awfully loooong day!
Trains are relatively empty after 8am
The accommodations are sparse at best. The couches aren't very comfortable and they smell like pee.
Watch out for people stealing phones and picking your pockets. These bums are gangsta and don't play!
Count on one of the escalators being broken at most times. Also, STAND ON THE RIGHT, PASS ON THE LEFT. The escalator isn't a ride!!
get on a train. see where it takes you.
Cool touch screen game downstairs
A Pigeon Pecked At My Boot, These Pigeons Here Are Gangsters!
The monitors by the Blue Line trains display arrival times. Be sure to keep an eye on those.
Your chocolate malted milkshake is waiting at the Juice Bar... or maybe a made-to-order smoothie. Check out the all new Walgreens at State and Randolph!
Why does someone always piss in the elevators????!?
Use the Blue Line elevator at your own risk. It always stinks of urine!
Get engaged here
I choo choo choose to get my drunk ass home safely
The brown & green lines are shorter in the afternoon until about 3pm.
Check out the GNC for workout juice and powders.
Lot of birds
Those aren't cats, they're rats!
Always some sexy chicks around during the week
Clearly the renovation of this station is a union job. They have been working on it for at least 5 years. It's not the pyramids boys.
22 and 24 stop here. It's the beginning of the route for the 24 so it's nice to get on while the bus waits to leave.
No one rail can kill you, you need to be grounded to to shunt the source, so just don't touch two rails at once :)
Another close safe transport after a night of Kickball and parties @Ravenswoodpub
Support local musicians!
If you're going west on the Green Line after about 10:00, I've generally found that it's a good idea to board the front car (with the conductor). Better safe than sorry...
There's something in the air at this station...it renders people useless - left stammering about, weaving left and right at a snail's pace. STOP CHECKING UR PHONES/DIGGING IN UR BAGS & WALK! ;)
Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using public transportation. Especially during flu season. There’s a way to stay well.
