The 95/Dan Ryan station is currently the southern terminus of the Chicago Transit Authority's Red Line and is one of the busiest stops in the system, behind the Clark/Lake station. Located at 14 West 95th Street in Chicago, Illinois (directional coordinates 9500 south, 14 west), the station is situated in the median of the Dan Ryan Expressway. Trains take 30 minutes to travel to the Loop, and 66 minutes to reach Howard.

Approximately 50,000 people go through the terminal every day. Many commuters from the far south side or south suburbs connect to 95th Street via the CTA and/or Pace bus systems. It is the farthest south stop in the CTA system. In 2006 Congressman Jesse L. Jackson, Jr. announced plans to extend Red Line service further south. Proposed new stations would include 103rd Street, 111th Street, 115th Street/Michigan Avenue ending at 130th Street/Stony Island Avenue.
