53rd Street Express Shuttle

53rd Street Shuttle stop moved back to Harper Court

The Harper Court stop for the 53rd Street Express Shuttle for University of Chicago employees and students has been moved back to the east corner of 53rd and Harper Court, effective today.

The stop had been temporarily relocated to 53rd and Blackstone Avenue due to a construction project along E. 53rd Street, and the change had been expected to stay in place through July 28. Progess on the project enabled the Harper Court stop to be restored two weeks early.
