CTA Provides Service to Dave Matthews Band Caravan Concert

July 7, 2011
The Chicago Transit Authority is a convenient travel option for fans heading to the Dave Matthews Band Caravan on Friday, July 9 through Sunday, July 10 at the USX redevelopment site at 83rd and Green Bay Avenue.
 
Shuttle buses will operate from the 87th/Red Line station to the entrance of the concert venue all three days.  The buses will be marked with special destinations signs labeled “Going Your Way” when headed to the venue and “To 87th Red Line” during return trips.
 
On all concert days, shuttles will operate every 15-20 minutes from 1 p.m. until approximately one hour after the concerts end, or as crowds warrant.  Regular CTA bus fares are required.
 
In addition, customers can take the #87 87th Street bus and exit at 87th/Burley and then walk a short distance to the concert venue.  The #87 will operate during its regular schedule hours throughout the weekend.
 
CTA also will operate longer trains on the Red Line to accommodate customers heading to the concert.  On all concert days longer trains will operate on the Red Line until 1 a.m. from the 95th street station.
