Good news for riders of the Skokie Swift: the Chicago Transit Authority will make the line's weekend service permanent. The CTA started a pilot program on the weekends last year to measure rider support.

The numbers now justify permanent weekend service.

According to the CTA, at least 1,300 passengers ride the Skokie Swift on Saturday, and about 1,800 on Sunday.
