Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) is a transformative project designed to ensure a strong future for the CTA’s busiest rail line, that will modernize stations and structures nearly a century old.
Detailed information is available on the CTA website (click here), and here are just a few of the highlights that will affect the 48th Ward in the RPM Phase One effort.

More than $1 billion in federal funding is available to the support the first phase of RPM transit line. But in order to receive the funding, the CTA and the City of Chicago must provide a local funding match. The Illinois General Assembly recently approved a new financial tool for this purpose known as Transit-Tax Increment Financing (TIF). Learn more about RPM Phase One & Transit-TIF.
