CTA website says "Sheltered bike parking available" which is not as descriptive as I was hoping for. 

Anyone have knowledge on if it would it be OK to leave my bike (properly locked) there over the weekend? I want to ride there then get on the train to fly out of O'Hare.

I like other blue line station's parking where the racks are inside the turn-styles, visible to the employee stations, and covered from the elements, hoping that is the case at Jefferson Park too.

Maybe not but it was the only 92 bus heading out. The traffic was backed up from before California which is where I passed it. nothing else passed me nor did I pass.

I'm used to slow traffic on Clark, Damen... but I guess the East/West routes are slower.

There are a zillion buses on Foster because of the Kedzie garage.  Seems unlikely to me you passed the same one.

Not related to parking but I locked mine up near Jeff park,got a flat en route, on the way home I missed the bus so I fixed it the rode down Foster and eventually caught up to and passed the bus!?

I think it's fair to say that most e/w streets in this city are the same in this regard-- the buses get completely stuck in bumper to bumper car traffic during rush hours, especially but not limited to one-lane stretches.  Fullerton, Armitage, Foster in particular are streets that could benefit from allowing bus and emergency motor traffic only.
