CTA 5445 is heading west on the Congress (now Eisenhower) Expressway in the mid-1960s, on its way toward DesPlaines Avenue, eastern terminus of Route 17 - Westchester. This was the bus line that replaced the old Westchester "L" in 1951. Service was gradually shifted to PACE Route 317 between 1992 and 2012. The CTA rapid transit line, at right, goes into the Lotus Tunnel just west of here, and shifts out of the median.
