CHICAGO (AP) - Getting to work on the Chicago Transit Authority's Red Line is going to be a lot different for the next five months.

Monday is the first weekday of the $425 million project to rebuild the Red Line on the city's South Side and that means no trains are running along the 10.2-mile stretch between Cermak-Chinatown and 95th street.

To help riders get where they need to go, the CTA will offer free shuttle bus service, expanded bus service and discounted rides on buses in some areas.

Some Red Line service will still be running in some areas, but it will be rerouted onto Green Line tracks. And White Sox fans can use Metra or the Green Line, which has a station a few blocks from U.S. Cellular Field.
