New CTA railcars that were being tested on the Red and Green lines have been temporarily removed from service.

Part of the braking system was found to be affected by train vibrations and that could cause a loss of friction for the brakes.

The company that made the cars is working to fix the problem.

The CTA hopes the railcars can resume service on the Green Line in a few weeks.
