The Bryn Mawr station dates back to 1908, like a number of stations on the north end of the CTA’s Red Line. In 1908, there was a station named Edgewater at Bryn Mawr Avenue near Evanston Avenue, now Broadway, according to Chicago-L.org. It was a grade-level train at that time powered by an overhead trolley wire.
In the early 1920s, construction of the elevated line was under way from Argyle through Jarvis. In 1926, the station’s name was changed to Bryn Mawr.
Today, about 4,900 daily boardings occur at Bryn Mawr, making it the second busiest between Wilson and Howard, after Loyola. In 2011, there were almost 1.6 million boardings.
Bryn Mawr and Loyola are the only two stations between Wilson and Howard that are not included in the Red North Station Interim Improvements. However, 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman said he wants a "larger scale project" at Bryn Mawr, and got a $15 million commitment from the CTA to do just that, according to CTA Tattler. Osterman plans to supplement that pot of money with Tax Increment Financing money. Look for further details here as they become available.
The No. 36 Broadway bus and No. 84 Foster serve the Bryn Mawr station. View the Bryn Mawr CTA rail schedule.
