31st Street Bus To Run For At Least Another Six Months

In 2012, the CTA extended the No. 35 bus to 31st Street west of Kedzie Avenue to Cicero Avenue in Little Village.

    31st Street Bus To Run For At Least Another Six Months
    BRIDGEPORT - The 31st Street bus will get another six months to convince the CTA to permanently reinstate the route, officials announced Wednesday. The bus will continue to operate along 31st Street between the Ashland Avenue station on the CTA Orange Line and 33rd street and King Drive through September to allow officials to evaluate bus service demand and collect more community feedback and ridership data from the route extension, officials said.

    @Erin, regarding the produce, it depends on which store you frequent. Some have a very nice refrigerated section for produce and it lasts as long as produce from any other supermarket. Belmont & Kimball is top notch. I once had an absolutely awful experience at one of the stores and emailed corporate to let them know since it was SO out of what I have grown to expect (spoiled produce in the bins, boxes all over the floor). I got a call from a regional manager who asked the date, the time of day, etc. She assured me she would look in to it immediately and even offered me a gift certificate (totally unnecessary).
