They should do this with the Chicago L. This would be so great, there are always disruptions on the lines. Get at it Google :D

Dude i totally agree. The Red Line and Blue lines need it the most. All the others are pretty cool. But for the Loop. And the Dearborn and State St Subways it is DESPERATELY needed. Getting thru there during rush hour is like pulling teeth. lol
