Diego Quiñones, 27, of Wicker Park who works in information technology has been a passenger of the Blue Line for the past year.
“The Damen Blue Line is the nearest to me, but I have to use the Western stop for the time being,” said Quiñones.
Having suffered a broken foot from a car accident, he underwent surgery which at first required him to use a wheelchair, but is now getting around on crutches.
“The overall nature of my situation is frustrating to say the least, but I remind myself to be grateful that it’s only temporary,” he said. “I have a couple more weeks before I fully recover.”
