CTA Directions

Connect with the pink line in the Loop if you need to transfer. The Clark/Lake CTA station is a good transfer point between all lines except red. The handicap-accessible CTA transfer from red to pink is Jackson Red to Harold Washington Library Station.

Once at California (Pink), walk north on California toward the large three-story brick building.
