Mass Transit Accidents in Chicago

The train operates over 224.1 miles and has 1,356 rail cars. On select routes, the major rail lines and some bus routes offer a Night Owl service during late and early morning hours.
The most common accidents can be caused by sudden starts and stops, speeding, and operator intoxication. According to the Federal Transit Administration, there is an average of one bus accident a day in Chicago.
