Route 234 Service Change
Effective Monday, December 6, 2021
To expand access to destinations in Wheeling and Buffalo Grove such as Woodman’s Food Market at Milwaukee Avenue/Deerfield Parkway and to improve operational efficiency, all Route 234 trips will be adjusted to operate via Dundee Road to/from Milwaukee Avenue and will no longer operate on Wolf Road between Dundee Road and Milwaukee Avenue. Also, the detour that began March 22, 2021, via Northgate Parkway and Lake Cook Road due to Wolf Road construction will be discontinued.
Regular northbound trips will end, and southbound trips will begin at 920 Deerfield Parkway. Trips serving Buffalo Grove Metra Park-n-Ride in both directions will continue to operate the normal routing via Busch Parkway.
Passengers can continue to access the Wheeling Metra Station from bus stops on Dundee Road. Also, Route 234 trips at Des Plaines Metra that continue as southbound Route 209 trips or continue from northbound Route 209 trips will maintain those connections.
Between Wolf/Dundee and Des Plaines, all northbound trips will continue to operate the current schedule, but some southbound trips will have schedule adjustments with trip times at timepoints shifting between 13 minutes later to 3 minutes earlier. Please check the updated timetable for more details.
