Large gatherings of teens are still going on in the Loop Saturday night, as many CTA bus lines have to change service due to crowds.

According to the agency, Jackson Park Express and J14 Jeffery Jump buses are being rerouted through the Loop, as are buses on Routes 3, 4, 146 and 147. Sheridan Route 151 buses are also being rerouted due to blockages in Michigan and Washington streets near Millennium Park.
