You’re invited: CTA RPM Next Phases Public Meeting – Study Updates
Join CTA staff for virtual Public Meetings about the RPM Next Phases Planning Study and learn about the future modernization of the Red and Purple Lines. We are hosting one meeting focused on the Chicago project area and one meeting focused on the Purple Line Evanston Branch. Similar information will be shared at both the meetings.

Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in Spanish and ASL. Captioning will be available.
CTA is undertaking the next phases of the Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) program to rebuild and modernize the century-old northern portion of the Red Line and the Purple Line. The RPM Phase One program is currently under construction (in the area just north of Belmont station and approximately between Lawrence and Bryn Mawr stations). The RPM Next Phases Planning Study initiates the planning work necessary to complete the improvements along the remaining areas within the 9.6-mile corridor, including the entirety of the 3-mile Purple Line Evanston Branch.
Once realized, the RPM program would fully replace infrastructure and stations that are significantly beyond their useful life and would allow CTA to increase train capacity and improve the customer experience for generations to come.
The RPM Next Phases Planning Study is the first step of the planning process that will set goals and objectives, engage the public, identify potential projects, and evaluate alternatives and phasing. The RPM Next Phases Planning Study focuses on three segments of the north Red Line and the Purple Line Evanston Branch:
Addison to Sheridan*
Thorndale to Howard *
Evanston Branch (Howard to Linden)
*November 14 Public Meeting will focus on Addison to Sheridan and Thorndale to Howard segments
