Garfield is one of two stations on Garfield Boulevard in Chicago. It serves the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system's Green Line. It is situated at 319 E Garfield Boulevard, three blocks east of State Street. It opened on October 1, 1892. This station is the southernmost consolidated Green Line station: south of Garfield, the Green Line splits into two branches, one terminating at Ashland/63, and one at East 63rd-Cottage Grove.
This is the L stop nearest to the University of Chicago and the Museum of Science and Industry, although still more than two miles away from the Museum. People looking to go to either of these destinations usually take the 55 or X55 bus.
