It has begun! After months of anticipation, the historic shut down of the southern portion of the CTA Red Line finally got underway the morning of Sunday May 19. 

On Monday May 20, Riders for Better Transit and community partners across the South Side will mobilize for a day of action to organize around the Riders Bill of Rights. Volunteers will be at CTA stations collecting signatures for the Riders Bill of Rights, which will help ensure their voices are heard throughout the duration of the Red Line closure and beyond. You can view and sign the Riders Bill of Rights here.
