That can't be right.  The blue line runs every 10 minutes or so, 24 
hours a day.  I tried the same service from the home page of 
transitchicago.com, just using the default destination (1 N. State 


and the times show trains departing every 10 minutes.

However, what is true is that for this weekend, if you're taking the 
blue line in, they'll make you disembark at Harlem, and board a shuttle 
bus (for free), which will take you to the Jefferson Park station, where 
you'll reboard the train.  (See Elliot Shank's previous email, or the 
Getting Around wiki page.)
