New Schedule for the Health Outreach Bus in 2021

IMG_1840-min The Health Outreach Bus is adjusting its schedule beginning January 1, 2021, to better serve Chicagoans experiencing homelessness or poverty.

To better serve Chicagoans experiencing homelessness or poverty, we are modifying the Health Outreach Bus schedule beginning January 1, 2021.

After a trial period serving Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood, we have determined that there are other areas of the city where our services are more critically needed at this time. Two of those areas are on the CTA Red and Blue lines, which many unsheltered individuals are riding overnight. We are allocating staff from the Health Outreach Bus to assist our Street Medicine Team in providing services at CTA stations two evenings of the week and making adjustments to the Bus schedule accordingly. The Bus's final visit to Rogers Park will be on Wednesday, December 30. 

In addition, beginning January 3, the Bus will be visiting the Pilsen neighborhood on Sundays from 4 to 6 pm instead of Monday evenings. The Bus will continue to visit Pilsen on Thursday evenings from 8 to 10 pm. Finally, the Bus's hours in South Shore will shift slightly on Mondays and Wednesdays, starting a half-hour later at 6 pm and lasting until 8 pm. 

Here is the new Bus schedule, effective January 1.
