Dec. 3, 2013: The Central stop in Evanston is centrally located near Northwestern's Ryan Field, Chandler Park, Evanston Hospital and Northshore University HealthSystem. It may be difficult for some riders to get to those last two spots, though. Though riders can see the medical offices from the Central Purple Line platform, the station is not accessible for riders with disabilities. Only two of eight Purple Line stations north of Howard are accessible -- the worst percentage of any line in the system. Systemwide, about two-thirds of the CTA rail stations are accessible.
